Open Enrollment – 2022 Rates - Human Resources at Ohio State
November 1-15, 2021
2022 Benefit Rates
Ohio State strives to offer a comprehensive benefits package that meets the needs of you and your family. Health care expenses continue to rise nationally, and Ohio State’s Faculty and Staff Health Plan has also experienced an increase in the total cost per member. We are fortunate to be able to help lessen the impact on employees by minimizing employee contribution increases in 2022 for our health care benefits. Rates for COBRA coverage increase consistent with the total cost of coverage.
Use the interactive tool below to view the 2022 rates for each of the university’s medical/ prescription, dental, vision, life insurance and short-term disability benefits for which you are eligible. Please note that benefit rates may vary based on your compensation, full-time equivalency (FTE) and classification.
Employees who hold Intermittent positions are only eligible for OPERS and STRS retirement benefits.
Additional 2022 Rates Information
Ohio State uses job family, along with percentage full-time equivalency (FTE) and employee type (Regular, Term, Temporary, Seasonal and Intermittent) to define benefits eligibility and premium rates. If you are unsure of your job family or employee type, FTE or standard hours, check with your department human resources contact.

Regular – Any faculty or staff (classified or unclassified) position of any percentage of FTE (up to 100%) for which the employment relationship between the university and the individual is intended to be ongoing.

- Enrolled faculty and staff are eligible for a $300 annual premium credit.

As you complete levels of the incentive program, you will earn the following:
- Enrolled faculty and staff can earn up to $300 in HRA credits during 2022.
- Enrolled spouses can earn an additional $300 in HRA credits during 2022.
If you are a full-time regular, term or seasonal employee (75 – 100 percent FTE), your compensation tier is determined annually by taking your base pay as of October 1 and any additional pay earned during the prior 12 months. Once your compensation tier is established each year prior to open enrollment, it will not be adjusted until the following year, even if your base pay changes or you earn additional pay.
