Health care, insurance information available at benefits fairs

The UW‘s annual benefits fairs will be held Nov. 1–3. The fairs provide an opportunity for UW employees to get information about their health care and insurance options directly from the benefits providers. This is especially important to employees who are thinking of changing their 2012 medical or dental coverage during the Open Enrollment period, which runs from Nov. 1 through Nov. 30. All medical and/or dental changes submitted during this period become effective Jan. 1, 2012.
