What is Open Enrollment?

Open Enrollment is your opportunity to review your benefits and make choices for the upcoming year.  Benefits are a critical component to your total compensation.  At Xavier University, we are committed to 100% positive enrollment.  All benefit eligible employees must complete an on-line enrollment form to either elect or decline Xavier's benefits.  During this time, you will have an opportunity to attend group and one-on-one sessions to better inform you about your benefit choices. 

Benefits impacted by the annual open enrollment period are medical insurance, dental insurance, vision insurance and flexible spending accounts.  In addition for 2012, employees who elect a high deductible health plan will have an opportunity to contribute to a health savings account. A summary of other University benefits will be displayed in the on-line system so you can better understand the benefits you receive and their overall value.

  • Your elections become effective January 1, 2012 and will remain effective for the entire year. 
  • You cannot change your benefits elections during the year unless you experience a qualifying life event change.
