Medical Benefits

  • Capital University’s sponsored group medical insurance is provided by UnitedHealthcare. The plan permits in-network and out-of-network provider services with appropriate deductibles and co-pays. Employees have three medical plans to choose from when considering medical coverage.


    Active three-quarter-time or greater employees are eligible to enroll in the plan, and participation in the program is optional.


    In general, the current spouse, children, stepchildren, and foster children of employees qualify as eligible dependents. Adult children may be eligible for coverage up to age 26. Please see the Human Resources Office for more details.


    New employees must enroll within the first 31 days of employment. After the initial enrollment period, employees are permitted to make changes within 31 days of a qualifying event, such as marriage, the birth or adoption of a child, or the loss of coverage. Otherwise, employees must wait until open enrollment to add or make changes to their coverage.
