PLEASE NOTE:

If you leave coverage under the University health and/or dental insurance plans, you cannot return to purchasing the coverage at a later time. If you drop coverage at the time of retirement, or if you maintain coverage for a period of time in retirement and then drop it, you cannot return to the university coverage. The exception is, if you currently have health or dental insurance through your own or your spouse's employment, you may enroll in our plans if that coverage ends.
