NEW Regular UK Employees

Everyone at MPM would like to welcome you to UK and our website. Since 1995, MPM has partnered with UK to provide and administer benefits designed to supplement those already provided by the University. As a NEW UK employee (within 60 days of hire), several of these Voluntary Benefits are available without answering a lot of health questions if you apply within the first 60 days of your hire date. If you do not elect to participate in the first 60 days, stricter underwriting guidelines (more health questions) will be asked and coverage could be denied. It is important to not delay in reviewing these benefits.

Most Supplemental Benefits have common features that include:

  • Discounted Costs 
  • Payroll Deduction
  • No Medical Exams
  • Portability - Most plans may be continued after employment ends on a direct bill basis.

These Voluntary Benefits have FEW or NO heath questions during your first 60 days of employment. Additional health questions will be required after 60 days (30 days for Group Term Life), and coverage could be denied.
