Human Resources: Where your personal and professional lives meet
Effective October 1, 2018 the District's dental, vision and EAP plans are changing for all eligible employees and enrolled retirees. Our dental and vision carriers will remain the same so you won't have to change providers, however, as you will see by the flyers and comparison charts listed below the changes will provide you with even better coverage (with a few minimal exceptions) that what we had before. Our new EAP plan is with a new carrier, however, if you are currently accessing services with an MHN provider, you should have no problem completing your visits. ELIGIBLE CHILDREN WILL NOW BE COVERED TO AGE 26 REGARDLESS OF STUDENT OR DEPENDENT STATUS!
Beginning October 1st, the $2,500 annual cap for services is lifted. As long as you continue to treat with a Delta PPO provider, you will have no annual cap (so if you are unlucky enough to need three crowns in one year, you may not have any out of pocket expenses). Also, if you or a covered dependent needs braces, orthodontia is now covered at 100% up to a lifetime maximum of $3,000. Bridges and dentures however are now only covered at 50% (was 70%). Below is a plan summary as well as a comparison chart comparing our old plan with our new plan.

SISC III Member Change Form
Adding an eligible dependent that is not currently covered under your medical, dental and/or vision plan requires a completed original enrollment form and:
YOU MUST ENROLL YOUR NEW DEPENDENT(S) WITHIN 30 DAYS OF THE EVENT (birth, marriage, adoption, etc.) or you may not be able to enroll them until the next regular Open Enrollment Period.
As a reminder, it is the employee’s responsibility to notify the Benefits Coordinator in Human Resources within 60 days of the event if you have a covered dependent that ceases to be your dependent; for example:
Failure to timely notify the District (by emailing the Benefits Coordinator in Human Resources) will result in loss of continuation coverage rights under COBRA and may include the carrier(s) billing you for services the ineligible dependent received and/or reimbursement of District paid premiums.
For specific eligibility questions contact the HR Benefits Office at extension 6713 or
Health Insurance Portability & Accountability Act (HIPAA): For those who have declined enrollment for themselves, or any employee who elected to not enroll an eligible dependent (spouse, child, domestic partner) because of enrollment in another health insurance plan, you may be able to enroll yourself and your dependents in a District plan if you or your dependents lose eligibility for that other coverage (or if the employer stops contributing toward your or your dependents' other coverage) IF you request enrollment within 30 days after your or your dependents' other coverage ends (or after the employer stops contributing toward the other coverage). Failure to notify the Benefits Coordinator timely means you will have to wait until the next regular open enrollment period.
In addition, if you have a new dependent as a result of marriage, birth, adoption or placement for adoption, you may be able to enroll yourself and your dependents. However, you must request enrollment within 30 days after the marriage, birth, adoption, or placement for adoption.
To request special enrollment or obtain more information, contact Michelle McKay, Benefits Coordinator at 408.223.6713 or HR.Benefits@sjeccd.edu.
Beginning on their 21st birthday and each birth month after that until they turn 23, adult children must be a full-time student at an accredited institution to remain covered by the District's life insurance policy. Before the last day of their birth month, a copy of their current class schedule indicating their total units, or a letter from the school stating their full-time status, and the form below must be submitted to the Human Resources Department or their life insurance coverage will end.
Student Certification Form
If you have an adult child who is disabled, temporarily or permanently, please contact the Benefits staff in Human Resources at extension 6713 to discuss available options of keeping him/her covered UNDER ALL PLANS regardless of age and/or student status. Adult children who become disabled after age 26 and become dependent on you may be eligible for enrollment under the District's health and welfare plans. Please contact HR.Benefits@sjeccd.edu or call 408.223.6713 immediately for more information and required documentation.
Please note: due to the number of District employees, we are unable to verify the current emergency contact and/or the beneficiary(s) you have on file. If any time during the year you are unsure of who/what you listed, complete a new form(s) and submit the original(s) to Human Resources. All forms above are available all year long on this page and the Human Resources page.

If you are an employee currently enrolled in the District's Kaiser Permanente or Anthem Blue Cross Plan and you are nearing your 65th birthday, please see the pamphlet below provided by Medicare to learn about the steps you should take to enroll in Medicare Parts A&B (and possibly D) and when.
The District recommends you (and/or your spouse) enroll in Part A upon turning 65 - it's free - but you are not required to enroll in Medicare Part B (or D) in order to continue your medical coverage as an active employee with SJECCD. However, if you have other medical coverage you should reach out to that employer to assure compliance with their plan(s).
The District's plan will remain your primary while actively employed, therefore, we do not require you to sign up and pay for Part B (or D) upon your 65th birthday. You should take steps with Medicare to assure Parts B & D (and A if not already enrolled) are effective the first of the month after your employment/coverage ends with SJECCD.
