Common Inquiries


All regular, full-time employees (those who work a minimum of 30 hours per week on a 1-year academic/calendar year contract) and full-time temporary employees (who have at least a one year appointment) are eligible. Regular part-time employees (those who work a minimum of 20 but less than 30 hours per week) can enroll, but must pay the full premium on a payroll deduction basis.

Part-time employees who work less than 20 hours per week are not eligible for benefits.

Benefit-eligible employees have the option of choosing between three health insurance plans. All of the plans cover exactly the same medical services. The only differences between our plans are the premiums, deductibles, copays and coinsurance.
