UT Benefits: You are covered 100%. From testing through treatment for COVID-19, the UT Select and UT Connect plans will cover in-network medically necessary services at 100%.

Thank you from Provost

Emergency paid leave available

UTA offers emergency paid sick leave and emergency family and medical leave to all eligible employees pursuant to the Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA).

The leave provided under the FFCRA does not modify an employee’s right to use sick, personal, or vacation time, as set forth in our current policies. Rather, these new provisions expand UTA’s employee benefits by requiring that UTA temporarily grant additional leave to certain employees due to COVID-19.
