Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

What is Summer Enrollment?

Summer Enrollment is the annual event/time when you can log in to your ERS account and make changes to your health insurance and optional insurance coverage elections for the new plan year that starts September 1, 2022.  (ERS administers our UNT System Enterprise insurance benefits).

What can I do during summer enrollment?

You can make changes to your coverages during summer enrollment for Plan Year 2023 like adding optional insurances (dental, vision, short term and long term disability); add dependents to your insurance; change from Health Select of Texas to the Consumer Directed plan; remove dependents, drop coverages you no longer need, apply for optional life insurance, etc.  Changes made will be effective September 1, 2022.

What should I do to prepare for Summer Enrollment?

It’s important to make sure that your address is correct with ERS.  ERS will be mailing important information to you before Summer Enrollment starts.  Check your address/contact information by logging in here and review your Personal Data.  Never logged into your ERS portal?  Register here.

What if I don’t have any changes to make to my coverages for the new Plan Year?

You don’t need to do anything if you want your coverages/elections to remain the same.  Your coverages will be the same in the new plan year if you make no changes in summer enrollment. That includes the amount you are contributing to TexFlex, which will continue September 1, 2022 as is if you make no changes.
