Colby offers a wide range of insurance benefits to help meet the needs of employees and their families.


Colby’s health plans and Flexible Spending Accounts (FSA) are maintained pursuant to Internal Revenue Code rules governing “cafeteria” plans. In order to achieve the tax savings under such plans, employees sign an irrevocable benefit election for each plan year (January 1 – December 31). Changes are only permitted in limited circumstances.

Colby’s medical plan currently provides three options to choose from:

  • Open Access Plus – OAP (500)
