Health & Welfare Benefits


The following health and welfare benefit plans are available to current Georgetown University faculty, staff and AAPs.  Benefits eligibility varies according to plan.   

Medical Insurance

Georgetown University offers a selection of medical plans. Find information about Georgetown-sponsored medical plans, eligibility, enrolling and making changes, plus links to medical plan carriers’ websites. 

Dental Insurance

Georgetown offers three dental insurance plans to help you maintain good dental health. Information about the dental insurance plans, your and your family’s eligibility for dental insurance, and enrolling in a dental plan are provided here.

Vision Insurance

Georgetown offers a comprehensive, employee-paid vision care benefit provided by EyeMed Vision care. Information about the plan, your eligibility and enrollment is available.

Flexible Spending Accounts 

The Health Care (HCRA) and Dependent Care (DCRA) Reimbursement Accounts allow you to pay on a pretax, salary reduction basis for eligible health care expenses not covered by your medical, dental, or vision plans and eligible dependent care expenses. 

Life Insurance

Georgetown provides life insurance at no cost for most employees. Additional insurance for you and your family members is available for a monthly premium. 

Disability Insurance

Georgetown automatically enrolls eligible employees in short term and long term disability coverage.  These plans, administered by MetLife, are designed to replace a portion of your income if you are unable to work due to illness or injury.  Georgetown pays the entire cost of short term disability (or salary continuance for academic employees); long term disability premiums are deducted from your pay on an after-tax basis.

Health Advocate

The Health Advocate program will provide you, your spouse and dependent children unlimited phone or email access to a Personal Health Advocate. Personal Health Advocates are typically registered nurses, supported by medical directors and benefits and claims specialists, who can get to the bottom of a wide variety of health care and insurance-related issues.
