During the Benefit Choice Period this year there will be two different sessions offered to benefits-eligible employees to assist in understanding the changes. One is a campus event offered by the UPB Benefits office, and the other is offered by Central Management Services (CMS) where Benefit Fairs are scheduled throughout the state.
UPB Benefit Choice Employee Information Sessions
Information sessions are scheduled on all campuses during the month of May. These sessions will present information on health plan options, premium and coverage changes; Flexible Spending Accounts (FSA) and the changes that can be made during this Benefit Choice Period which is May 1 to May 31.

UPB Benefits representatives will be available to answer questions. Health plan representatives will not be present at these sessions. Registration is required to attend these events and is available online. If additional sessions are needed, they will be added to the registration site.
