Dependent Verification Audit

The University of Louisville is conducting a Dependent Verification Audit for university employees and retirees who have dependents enrolled in the University of Louisville health, dental, vision and/or dependent life insurance. To maintain comprehensive and competitive benefits for our faculty and staff, the university must ensure that everyone covered under our plans is eligible for coverage. You may have already or will soon be receiving a letter which will give instructions on how to submit the supporting documentation needed to ensure continued coverage for your dependent(s). Employees will be contacted by a legitimate third party source (Aon Hewitt) who is conducting this audit, including Dependent Verification Center (mail), donotreply@plan-smart.com (email) and Dependent Services (phone). If you have questions, please contact the Dependent Verification Center, 1-866-272-7174.
