Open Enrollment 2024

Main content start

Your opportunity to make changes to your benefits with no qualifying life event required! Take advantage of this time to add or drop dependents from your medical, dental, and vision plans.

2024 Benefits Guide

Login to Benelogic between October 23 thru November 10 to make Open Enrollment elections. Even if you don't plan on making any changes, it is still a good idea to log in and verify that your address and life insurance beneficiaries are current.

If you want to waive medical insurance for 2024, you must provide proof of having suitable coverage that meets ACA and Stanford requirements.

If you make no changes during this time, then what you have now will automatically roll over into 2024.

Medical Coverage

We are pleased to inform our esteemed Stanford Postdocs that we will continue to offer a top-notch medical coverage plan, Stanford Health Care Alliance (SHCA). SHCA provides lower copays for a wide range of medical services; this year, we've lowered copays for some services. We are particularly proud to announce that beginning January 1, 2024, Teladoc PCP visits, including all mental health providers, have a $0 copay, while specialist visits only require a $20 copay. Additionally, our dependent premiums have been rounded to the nearest dollar, resulting in a slight decrease for 2024. What's more, you won't have to pay a single penny for postdoc-only coverage! We encourage you to learn more about our coverage by referring to our 2024 Summary of Benefits and Coverages and our 2024 Health Premium Rate Sheet. We believe that this is a wonderful opportunity for you to take control of your health and well-being towards a healthier and happier you!
