Adjunct Faculty


Announcing the Kaiser Enrollment Period for

Adjunct Faculty

02/11/2019 - 02/22/2019 Only

Medical Benefits:

Each semester all part-time (adjunct) faculty - with at least a 40% load and no other coverage - are eligible to enroll in the District's medical plan with Kaiser Permanente.  The enrollment period for spring 2019 begins Monday February 11, 2019 and ends at 5:00pm Friday, February 22, 2019.  If enrolled, your coverage will be effective March 1, 2019 through August 31, 2019.  Emails containing the enrollment information including forms are sent to your campus email address.  Forms are available below by clicking on the links, or you may request a hard copy by calling the Benefits line at 408.223.6713 (ext 6713 from any campus phone), or emailing 

To qualify:

    • You must carry at least a 40% cumulative equivalent load of a minimum full-time faculty assignment (either instructional or non-instructional) on February 22, 2019.  If your load is reduced after that time or classes are cancelled, you may still be eligible to participate.
    • You may not have any other medical coverage and must sign a statement verifying that you have no other coverage.
    • You must pay at least 50% of the premium (plus 100% of your dependent coverage, if applicable)
    • Eligible dependents may be enrolled at full cost to the employee.  (A copy of the first page your 2017 federal tax return is required to enroll your spouse, a copy of your State Registry for Domestic Partners is required to enroll your same-sex domestic partner, and birth/adoption certificates are required to enroll eligible children.  Children may be covered until their 26th birthday regardless of their dependent or student status. 
    • Enrollment outside of the special enrollment period each semester or a regular Open Enrollment period is only allowed when there is a qualifying event (mid-semester new hires, employee's load increased mid-term making them now eligible, employee lost other coverage, court order, etc.).  If you think you may have had a qualifying event, do not hesitate to contact the Benefits Staff in Human Resources at or 408.223.6713 as there are strict brief windows of enrollment/opportunity. 
    • Premium deductions are taken from pre-taxed dollars on March, April, May and June paychecks for spring enrollees. 
    • Included with this Kaiser plan is access to the AnthemEAP (Employee Assistance Plan).
