Transition from Kaiser Permanente to cigna

The University of Denver will be transitioning from Kaiser Permanente to Cigna July 1, 2021. All information regarding this change, including FAQs, recorded Town Halls, and Benefits Summaries can be found both at the Benefits Open Enrollment Website: and at the Cigna Transition website: 

All benefited employees must participate in this year’s active Open Enrollment period from May 10th through May 28th for the benefit plan year beginning July 1, 2021.  

Faculty and staff must log in to PioneerWeb during the Open Enrollment period to confirm or change their benefit plan elections. 

Employees who do not log in to PioneerWeb and make their benefit plan elections during the Open Enrollment period will NOT automatically default into any benefit plans and they will have no coverage beginning July 1, 2021.

With the change to Cigna, you no longer need to complete the wellness incentive program. Beginning July 1, the wellness incentive program will no longer be tied to the monthly medical premium rates. The rates per plan per tier will be the same for all employees enrolled in a Cigna medical plan. Employees will have access to their Wellness Incentive Portal through Aduro here at: until May 31, 2021. 

Faculty and staff support network (FSSN)

We are happy to announce a new resource—the Faculty and Staff Support Network (FSSN)—that will ensure that co-workers and colleagues have a way to reach out and engage support for someone they believe may need it.

While many resources and systems, such as the Employee Assistance Program, already are in place to aid members of the DU community, the new FSSN will address an important gap: how to intervene on behalf of someone who is struggling. If you notice that a co-worker or colleague is behaving in a way that causes you concern or creates an environment at work that you believe is harmful or unsafe, the FSSN will allow you to intervene discretely, without concern of repercussion. You also can self-refer through the FSSN for advice about what assistance you may need, or where within DU is the right place to turn.
