Residents, Fellows and Interns

The University of Minnesota offers health benefits crafted especially for residents, fellows, and interns and the Office of Student Health Benefits is pleased to administer health benefits and enrollment. 

The Office of Student Health Benefits' mission is to meet the unique healthcare needs of the entire student, graduate assistant, and resident population on all University of Minnesota campuses. In our pursuit to empower students with the best healthcare coverage, we coordinate healthdentaldisability, and life insurance benefits for all residents, fellows, and interns.

Open enrollment for medical and dental plans is May 1 to June 15, or within 14 days of your start date, whichever is later. During this time, you are able to make changes to your plans for the next year. Open enrollment for dental benefits is every other year, odd years. During open enrollment in an even year, residents and fellows may only enroll if they are newly eligible. 

Open enrollment for flexible spending accounts is from November 1 to November 30, and you must re-enroll each year. 

Our office looks forward to serving you!
