Health Insurance

From ways to help save for future medical expenses to a full range of medical insurance options, Virginia Tech offers employees an abundance of health benefits.

Health Insurance Plans

Virginia Tech offers eligible employees a variety of health insurance plans to choose from to meet their unique needs. Additional buy-up options are offered as well, including expanded dental, vision & hearing, and out-of-network coverage.

As part of Virginia Tech’s health care benefit program, employees who are covered by the university’s health insurance have access to the Employee Assistance Program (EAP), which offers professional help for you or someone in your family.

Flexible Spending Accounts

Eligible Virginia Tech employees have the opportunity to take advantage of the savings that come from Flexible Spending Accounts, which allow employees to set aside money each pay period on a pre-tax basis to pay for qualified health care and dependent care expenses.

Cardinal Enrollment

Cardinal HCM (Human Capital Management) is the online system used by the Commonwealth of Virginia to administer health benefits. Employees can use this system to enroll in health insurance and flexible spending accounts as new employees, during Open Enrollment, or during certain Qualifying Mid-Year events.
