Benefits Available to Regular Faculty and Staff
You have the choice of two health plans: UISelect and UIChoice. You will pay considerably less for care on both plans if you choose doctors and hospitals at a lower provider level. You do not need to pick a provider level when selecting coverage.
Dental II is administered by Delta Dental of Iowa and is a three-tier provider network (PPO, Premier, and Non-participating providers). You may see any provider you wish. The lower tier of provider you choose, the lower your out-of-pocket cost will be. You do not need to pick a tier when selecting coverage.
Life and Disability Insurance
Your benefits include a group life insurance plan paid for by the university (2 times your salary) amongst other enrollment options. You also have the ability to purchase additional term life insurance and AD&D insurance for yourself and your dependents. Also included in the benefits package is the automatically provided and paid for by the University, Long-term disability insurance coverage.
