As an employee of the University of Iowa, you have the opportunity to purchase optional discounted insurance products. These programs are voluntary. Employees who are paid monthly can do this through payroll deduction.
The University is not making any judgments concerning the companies or the product offerings. The University has no say in the design features of these products, the premiums charged, who is eligible, and what companies are used. These product offerings contain no university contribution and can only be paid through payroll deduction on an after-tax basis. Therefore, products and/or premiums cannot be reimbursed from the employee's Flexible Spending Account (FSA) program.
University Benefits is unable to answer any questions concerning these products. There are multiple products offered through numerous companies. Please direct any questions you have directly to the company involved.
