Delta Dental's ToGo Program allows you to carry over any unused annual benefit from one year to the next. This program offers more flexibility and helps you plan for more extensive and costly dental treatments for yourself, or your covered family members, in subsequent years. This program does not cost anything and is automatic for anyone enrolled. This rollover will occur at the end of the plan year, December 31st.

Irritating sniffles, coughing, sore throats, and fevers can be time consuming when a doctor’s visit is needed. Utilizing Doctor On Demand can save you time for these common symptoms. Doctor On Demand is a virtual office visit that can be used as an alternative to waiting at urgent care or a visit to your physician’s office for common illnesses. This service saves you time, costs you the same co-pay that you would owe when going to urgent care or your physician’s office, and saves the University money on our self-insured health plans. Examples of common illnesses would be skin irritations, pink eye, UTIs, cold, and flu. For more information visit our Doctor on Demand website.
Experiencing a qualified life event such as marriage, or birth of a child, allows you to make changes to your benefits. If you do not have a qualified life event during the year you may make changes annually during Open Enrollment, which occurs each year in the fall. Any changes made during the open enrollment period will be effective January 1, 2020. Human Resource Services will announce information regarding Open Enrollment through our Benefits webpage, HRS Latest News, Inside UNI, UNI email, and home mailings. Keep watching, more information will be coming soon.
