Healthcare Opt-Out

At Willamette, our comprehensive health care plans are designed to provide the highest quality care. We strive to provide our benefit eligible faculty and staff with access to evidence-based, comprehensive medical, behavioral health, vision, prescription, alternative care, dental, and orthodontic benefits that encourage healthy living.

  • The University recognizes that not every employee is in need of coverage under the University-sponsored health plan.
  • Eligible employees that do not need coverage and provide evidence of their other coverage can choose to receive a taxable cash option of $100 per month in lieu of being covered on the University health plan.
