Summer Enrollment 2020 Dates

UNT Employees:  June 29 - July 11, 2020

UNTD, UNTHSC, UNTS Employees:  July 6 - July 19, 2020

What can I do during Summer Enrollment?

You can make changes to your coverages during summer enrollment for Plan Year 2021 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 longer need, apply for optional life insurance, etc. Changes made will be effective September 1, 2020.

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, 2020 as is if you make no changes.

Where do I make my changes during Summer Enrollment?

Make changes online in the ERS portal.

If you have never used the portal, you can register here.

What are the main changes this year to our insurance coverages and options?

  • No premium increases this year
  • TexFlex carry over balance increasing from $500 to $550 for Plan Year 2021
