Frequently Asked Questions

 Where do I find health insurance information?

The Employee Services website for health insurance contains enrollment information, insurance options and policy information, university policies, and forms for verifying a dependent.


 Is gender-affirming surgery covered in faculty insurance and/or in student insurance?

In faculty insurance, the medical insurance plans administered by Anthem (Exclusive, Extended, and High Deductible) cover gender-affirming surgeries according to Anthem’s medical policies and guidelines. Please check each plan’s “Benefits Booklet” for more information.

For students, the university no longer offers its own optional health insurance coverage. Students should visit the official Colorado health insurance exchange to explore health insurance options.
