Please note that you may be eligible for state plans, GatorCare and UFSelect plans.  Please carefully review your elections with the state in the People First system and with UFSelect in the myUFL system to ensure you do not have duplicate coverage.  Any change made to an election in the People First system does not impact elections in the myUFL system.  Changes between a state plan and a UF plan will require two transactions — one in People First and one in myUFL.
