The University contributes toward the payment of your health insurance premiums through payroll deduction and The State of Colorado contributes a portion of the premium as graphically depicted on the Colorado Health Plan Description. Rates are adjusted periodically to maintain the Insurance Plan on a sound financial basis. Premiums are deducted from your payroll check and an employee has the option to take advantage of the IRS Section 125 Plan that deducts medical and dental premiums on a pretax, pre-retirement basis.
