About Pre-65 Open Enrollment
Open Enrollment is the time when Pre-65 retirees can make changes to their Medical and Dental plans for themselves and their enrolled pre-65 dependents. It begins Wednesday, May 5 and ends Friday, May 21, 2021 at 11:59 p.m. with plan changes effective July 1, 2021. If you do not make changes at this time, you can make changes next year during UNM’s Pre-65 Open Enrollment in April and May 2022, or if you experience a qualifying change in status event.
Action is not required on your part to continue current coverage for yourself and dependents. However, we recommend you contact the Bursar’s Office at 505.277.5363, or Live Chat: Mon-Fri, 8AM - 5PM, to adjust your Automatic Bill Payment for any premium changes due to benefits changes you elect for July 1, 2021.
Packets containing an Open Enrollment Guide and an Open Enrollment Form with Instructions were mailed to all eligible Pre-65 retirees prior to the start of Open Enrollment. If you do not receive your packet, need assistance making changes to your benefits, need to update your address on file, or if you have questions, email HRBenefits@unm.edu.
The following changes are effective for the upcoming Fiscal Year, July 1, 2021 – June 30, 2022 (FY22).
NO JULY 1 RATE INCREASES OR PLAN DESIGN CHANGES
