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 fall 2019 begins September 13, 2019 and ends at 5:00pm September 20, 2019 and the effective date of coverage will be September 1, 2019.   If enrolled, your coverage will be effective September 1, 2019 through February 29, 2020.  You must recertify each semester to continue coverage.  Emails containing the enrollment information including forms are sent to your campus email address.  Those currently enrolled in the District's plan need only submit the Verification of Eligibility.  

For an October 1, 2019 effective date of coverage:

Open Enrollment Period for All Eligible Employees

This year, the Open Enrollment Period overlaps with the general enrollment period for adjunct for the fall semester.  If you are eligble for coverage as of September 20, 2019 you will be enrolled effective September 1, 2019.  If you are not as of that date (for example you have other coverage for the month of September), your enrollment will be processed as an Open Enrollment enrollment, and the effective date of your coverage will be October 1, 2019.  For coverage to continue as of March 1, 2020, you must recertify during the spring semester. 

Both the Kaiser Enrollment Form and the District's Verification of Eligibility Form are required for anyone not currently enrolled in the District's plan.  

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 September 20, 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 2018 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 October, November, December 2019 and January 2020 paychecks for fall enrollees. 
    • Included with this Kaiser plan is access to the AnthemEAP (Employee Assistance Plan).
