Review & Update Your Benefits now through Oct 28, 2022! 

Open Enrollment is an opportunity for all benefits eligible employees to enroll in or make changes to their benefits for the upcoming year. The Open Enrollment period will begin October 10, 2022 and end October 28, 2022. Tulane is committed to providing our employees with a benefits program that is both comprehensive and competitive. Our benefits program offers health care, dental, vision coverage, as well as financial security to our employees and their families. Use the information provided on this page as a general overview of your benefit choices and the Enrollment Guide to help you select the coverage that is right for you.

Open Enrollment is passive this year, which means if you do not make any changes, you will remain in the same coverage for 2023, except for FSA/HSA elections.

Remember! Open Enrollment is Your Chance To:

  • Change, elect, add dependents, or drop medical, dental, vision, Healthcare Flexible Spending Accounts (FSA), Health Savings Account (HSA),  and life insurance coverage.
  • Update beneficiary information.
  • Update personal contact information for yourself and dependents, including address, dates of birth, social security numbers, etc.
  • Contribute to Healthcare Flexible Spending Accounts (FSA), Dependent Care Flexible Spending Accounts (DFSA), and Health Savings Accounts (HSA). Don't forget, 2022 FSA elections do not carry over to 2023, so you must re-enroll.
What's Changing in 2023?
  • Rates for the medical plans will increase.
  • Rates for the dental plans will decrease.
  • HealthEquity will be new administrator for the FSA and HSA plans.
  • FSA & HSA annual limits will increase.
  • Tulane Telehealth will provdide virtual access to Tulane doctors for employees.
  • The Employee Health Improvement Program (EHIP) will return in the Spring.
  • Tulane will be moving to a new wellness platform WellRight.
