Resources for Newly Benefits-Eligible Employees

Enroll for your benefits in My VU Benefits. You must complete your 2018 New Hire Enrollments before you can enroll in benefits for 2019. You will have multiple windows depending on the benefits you are eligible for. If you make changes to your 2018 benefit selections due to a qualifying event after completing Open Enrollment, you must reselect your 2019 benefits as well.

Look for your New Hire & Annual Open Enrollment windows in My VU Benefits. See below for a sample of the windows for a new exempt staff employee. If you are non-exempt staff, faculty, or union staff you will see different enrollment windows and may not be eligible for the same benefits.

Need help choosing a plan? Introducing the new PLANselect tool

planselect Choosing a health plan is a personal decision that should be based on your needs. Both of the 2019 Vanderbilt health plans provide comprehensive health care coverage, but only you can determine which plan may be better for you. How will you know which plan to choose?  To help take some of the mystery out of your decision process, Vanderbilt has partnered with FLIMP Communications to bring you PLANselect.
PLANselect helps you choose a health plan that may offer the best value and/or the lowest overall cost, given your and your family’s anticipated medical needs. After answering a few multiple-choice questions, the PLANselect tool uses its proprietary algorithms to model a personalized analysis and plan comparison, which considers premiums, HSA contributions, and expected out-of-pocket costs (such as co-pays and deductibles).
PLANselect results are based on user data from over 16 million healthcare claims, advanced statistical analysis, and expertise from medicine and health insurance providers. The PLANselect model incorporates what they've learned from helping thousands of employers and employees make value-based decisions when selecting a health plan.
You can model any number of scenarios you want; no personal information is saved by the tool.  PLANselect is simple to use, and informative!  Give it a try.
