Introducing Alex

The University is providing an online, interactive, decision support tool called ALEX. In addition to the support the Benefits Department provides, ALEX can further assist employees by serving as an educational and decision support resource during the open enrollment period. By answering a series of questions about how you utilize your benefits, ALEX can help you choose the best fit medical plan for you and your family.

We encourage you to take time to thoughtfully consider your current benefit elections and the coverage you will need in 2018.  Unless you experience a qualifying life event, such as marriage or birth/adoption of a child, the decisions you make during this next enrollment opportunity will be in place for the entire plan year.
