What's New in 2022
Supplemental Medical Coverage
Available through PittPerks, MetLife is offering supplemental medical coverage with accident, critical illness, and hospital indemnity insurance. This employee-paid coverage would serve as a supplemental policy to complement your UPMC insurance provided by the University (or other existing coverage).
Enrollment in this optional coverage only takes place during the Benefits Open Enrollment period from April 25 through May 27 via PittPerks; enrollment for these voluntary benefits does not take place in Pitt Worx.
The supplemental medical coverage is only available to active employees.
