"Summary of Coverage and Benefits" document

The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) requires the AUI Comprehensive Medical Insurance Plan to provide a “Summary of Coverage and Benefits” to plan participants prior to the close of annual open enrollment.

These documents were produced by Cigna HealthCare and follow specific federal guidelines. Please note that these are only summaries and do not outline the comprehensive details of your plan. For complete coverage details you should refer to the Summary Plan Description for your plan as posted on this site.

The updated current year Summary Plan Descriptions will be available online and in hard copy form upon request in the first quarter of the current year.

You have a right to receive a paper copy of the Summary of Coverage and Benefits upon request at no charge to you. If you would like to request a paper copy, or if you have any questions, please contact the benefits office.
