Welcome to Novant Health UVA Health System Culpeper Medical Center. It's time to understand and consider electing a benefits package that meets your family's health and financial needs, now and in the future.
As a new hire, you have 31 days from your date of hire to make your benefit elections. During this time, benefit-eligible team members will have the opportunity to learn about and enroll in the benefit plans available. Benefits will be effective the 1st month following one month of employment.
- If you fail to make any elections during your new hire window you will have to wait until your next open enrollment or qualified life event to enroll in benefits. The only benefits that you will receive if you do not enroll are your company-paid basic life insurance and long-term disability. You will be auto enrolled into the employee paid 30-day short-term disability plan.
- To enroll a spouse in medical coverage, you must verify your spouse will not be eligible for employer-sponsored group medical coverage in 2021 by completing a spousal affidavit form and returning it to human resources.
- Short-term disability (STD)--all benefits eligible team members will automatically be enrolled in the 30-day waiting period plan. You will have the opportunity to buy up to the 15-day waiting plan or opt out. STD is guaranteed issue and no evidence of insurability (EOI) or proof of good health is required during your initial eligibility period.
If you would like to elect additional benefit plans you must enroll in those plans during open enrollment.
