Stanford encourages employees to review and confirm 2019 medical plan coverage

Stanford will offer free employee-only coverage through Kaiser Permanente in 2019. Rates will increase for employees who choose plans other than Kaiser for employee-only coverage. Next year, Stanford is increasing the university contribution to employees who enroll in the Stanford Health Care Alliance plan to mitigate cost increases in the plan.

Stanford will no longer announce undergraduate application numbers

Stanford’s policy shift is intended to help de-emphasize the perceived importance of low admit rates at colleges and universities. The university will continue to publicly report application data to the federal government at the end of the admission cycle.
