Opt Out of Uniform Dental Benefits
Beginning January 1, 2016, you can choose your health insurance, with or without Uniform Dental Benefits.
If you are currently enrolled in a health plan, you will be automatically enrolled in Uniform Dental Benefits and can choose to opt out during the It’s Your Choice open enrollment period. New employees choose health insurance, with or without dental, during the application process.
Opt out of Uniform Dental Benefits by filing a Group Health Insurance Application/Change Form (ET-2301). You can make a change in myETF Benefits*, or complete a paper application and submit it to your benefits office if you are an employee, or to ETF if you are a retiree. See more on how to opt out of dental on the paper for or myETF Benefits.
If you do not opt out during It’s Your Choice open enrollment (October 5-30) you will have Uniform Dental Benefits in 2016. Check your contribution rates for the cost difference between medical benefits with and without Uniform Dental Benefits.
*UW System and UW Hospital and Clinics employees: Do not use the myETF Benefits system to enroll in or make changes to coverage. UW System employees should go to www.wisconsin.edu/ohrwd/benefits and contact your UW institution human resources department for enrollment instructions. UW Hospital and Clinics employees must complete a paper application and submit it to your human resources/benefits office.
