Health Insurance

There are two options to obtain a September 1 effective date for health insurance coverage. The earliest supplemental insurance (i.e., dental) effective date is October 1.

  1. The Benefits section of Human Resources (HR) will be hosting two health insurance information/enrollment sessions for new faculty members at the FSU Training Center.
    • Thursday, August 9, 2018 from 9:00 am – 11:00 am
    • Wednesday, August 15, 2018 from 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm
    • If you would like to attend one of these sessions, please contact the Benefits staff at insurance@fsu.edu or call Linda Lieblong at 850-644-7932 to register.
    • These sessions will provide you with detailed information on how to enroll for September 1 coverage, with a possible deduction for the health insurance premium from your August 17 paycheck.
  2. At the August 20 orientation, you can choose to attend a brief presentation and receive information about how to receive a September 1 effective date.
