Insurance Benefits

The University fulltime employees and their qualified dependents are offered medical insurance through Blue Cross Blue Shield of Alabama. Both medical plans offer preventative care at 100%, an outofpocket maximum to protect you should a catastrophic event occur, and outofnetwork coverage when needed. Although   outofnetwork coverage is available, using network providers will save you money. You can find Blue Cross Blue Shield of Alabama providers online at  or by calling Blue Cross Blue Shield of   Alabama at 18002928868.

The University pays for a Group Basic Life and Basic Accidental Death and Dismemberment Insurance through Guardian to all fulltime employees at no cost to the employee.

All fulltime employees are offered the following group benefits through Guardian Insurance: Dental, Vision, Life, Short Term Disability, Long Term Disability (after being employed for one year), Critical Illness, Accident, and Cancer

Flexible Spending account- With a Flexible Spending Account (FSA), you can set aside pretax dollars to pay for outofpocket expenses incurred for either health care or dependent day care. Because the amount you elect is taken on a pretax basis, you have the opportunity to save up to an estimated 25% of outofpocket expenses!
