New medical insurance plan information

Purdue employees will have a new medical insurance provider in 2014: Anthem Blue Cross/Blue Shield.

Faculty and staff will have three medical plan options from which to choose for implementation Jan. 1, 2014. The Office of Human Resources has planned a wide variety of ways for employees to learn about the plan options in order to make an informed decision.

  • Benefits Website [Opens in New Window] (contains information related to 2014 plans and premiums)
  • Medical Plan Comparison Tool (uses employee’s historical data to help select plan for coming year) (available fall 2013)
  • On Campus Presentations
  • Walk-In Labs during Open Enrollment (October and November)
  • Ongoing coverage in Purdue Today and HR e-newsletter
  • APSAC, CSSAC, Faculty Senate
