Re: Special Enrollment Period Ending September 15
Summary: The University's special enrollment period to extend health insurance coverage to adult children of UVM employees up to the age of 26 will end at 4:30 PM on Wednesday, September 15.
UVM has scheduled a special enrollment period from August 15 to September 15 to allow for the enrollment of adult children up to the age of 26 who had previously been ineligible for healthcare coverage. (The Affordable Care Act provides for coverage of adult children on their parent's health insurance until they reach age 26.)
If you do not wish to make a change to your coverage (or do not have a child up to the age of 26 who was previously ineligible for coverage), no action is required on your part.
