Annual Enrollment for Voluntary Benefits

This year Johns Hopkins University employees have another great group of voluntary benefits from which to choose. Between your core benefits and these voluntary benefits, you can secure the necessary coverage to protect yourself and your family from financial loss resulting from accidents, severe illness or legal matters. Here are just a few of the benefits available to you during annual enrollment, October 22 to November 12, 2014.

  • Accident Insurance – provides a payment to use as you see fit if you experience a covered event. There is no waiting period for coverage to begin and payment will be in addition to any other insurance you may have. This benefit can help you focus more on getting back on track and less on the extra expenses an accident may bring.
  • Critical Illness Insurance – pays a lump-sum amount if you or a covered family member is diagnosed with a critical illness and meets the policy and certificate requirements. Payments will be made directly to you, not to the doctor, hospital or other health care provider. You will receive a check mailed directly to your home. The payment you receive is yours to spend as you see fit.
  • Legal Insurance – enjoy quick, easy access to a nationwide network of 13,000 plan attorneys who have an average of 25 years of experience offering a broad range of legal services. You get the attorney you need at a cost that’s very affordable, with access by telephone or in-person for advice on an unlimited number of personal legal matters, and representation for a wide variety of legal services.
  • Vision Insurance – participate in a plan that helps you save big on vision services — from eye exams, glasses, contact lenses and so much more. It couldn’t be easier for you to get the care you need and lower your costs, all with a broad and diverse provider network, and freedom of choice on eyewear.
