Oct. 15, 2004

KALAMAZOO--Open enrollment for health insurance for eligible employees at Western Michigan University begins Monday, Oct. 18, and continues until 5 p.m. Friday, Oct. 29.

During open enrollment AAUP faculty, non-bargaining employees and retirees under age 65 have the option of changing health plans for 2005. In addition, they have the option of adding eligible dependents to their health insurance. The latter option also applies to AFSCME, MSEA, and POA employees, and to retirees age 65 and over. No action is required of those who do not wish to make a change to their health insurance.

Detailed open enrollment information was mailed to home addresses of employees and retirees Sept. 29. Individuals who did not receive this mailing can obtain the materials online at <www.wmich.edu/hr/benefits/health/open_enroll.htm>.
