If you miss your PIE, you may enroll in medical coverage at any time by submitting an enrollment form to your Benefits Office . However, you will need to complete a waiting period of 90 consecutive calendar days from the day you submit your form before your medical coverage is effective.
You may also enroll in a UC-sponsored medical plan during Open Enrollment , which is usually held in November.
If you are a newly appointed faculty member and don't enroll when first eligible, a second PIE starts on the first day of classes for the semester or quarter in which your appointment starts.
To enroll, see the Benefits Office or the person in your department who handles benefits.
