How to Enroll

Each year, you will be offered an opportunity to decide if Emory’s medical, dental and vision plans are right for you and your family during the Annual Benefits Enrollment period.

This year’s Annual Benefits Enrollment period ends on October 26, 2018 for the 2019 calendar year. The plan choices you make during this time will be effective January 1, 2019. If you do not make a change, your current coverage will continue with the exception of vision coverage. Return the enrollment forms(s) if you need to make a change or wish to enroll in or continue retiree vision.

Current retiree medical coverage through Aetna will not be available when you reach age 65. You will be notified to elect a new Medicare Supplemental plan. If you were hired prior to January 1, 2003, Emory will provide you with a subsidy to help offset the cost of your new plan. For more detailed information about what happens when you turn 65, click here.

IMPORTANT NOTE: If you ever decide to cancel or decline to participate in the retiree medical plan, you will not be permitted to re-enroll at a later date. You will also not receive the Emory subsidy that is provided to eligible retirees at age 65.

If you do not submit the enrollment form(s), your current medical and dental coverage will automatically roll over, however vision coverage will not automatically roll over. If you are currently enrolled in the vision plan and wish to continue coverage, you must submit your enrollment form and a check made payable to Emory University for the annual premium amount.


Emory offers the convenience of automatically drafting your checking account through ACH for the payment of your medical and dental plan coverage. If you choose to enroll for or continue vision coverage, payment by check or money order for the entire year will be required at the time of enrollment.
