Health insurance coverage is available to all faculty, administrative and support staff employees at the University of North Florida. A portion of the premium is paid by the University, greatly reducing your cost. Employees have 60 calendar days from their date of hire to enroll in a health insurance plan. Plan changes are able to be made only during the annual open enrollment period or as a result of an approved qualifying status change. To enroll or make changes to your health insurance plan, please contact the Office of Human Resources at (904) 620-2903 and schedule an appointment with a benefits coordinator. Enrollment forms may be mailed or faxed to (904) 620-2742 if an appointment is not needed.

UNF will contribute $41.66 per month ($500 annually) for employee only coverage or $83.33 ($1,000 annually) for family coverage for full-time employees. The HSA earns interest and can be carried over from one year to the next. The HSA is also portable, meaning that the account is still owned by the employee after termination of employment.
