BENEFITS FOR ADJUNCT FACULTy
For a September 1, 2019 effective date of coverage:
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:
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.

If you were working this past fall semester and had an assignment for the spring in December, you may not enroll now.
Each November/December, the District holds a special enrollment period for the following calendar year. Adjunct faculty teaching in the fall who already have an assignment for the following spring semester must enroll during that enrollment window. Those without a spring assignment will be allowed to enroll in February once they have an assignment. New hires will be allowed to enroll within 30 days of their first day of work. Faculty who only work in the fall will be allowed to enroll at that time for the remainder of the calendar year. Flexible Spending Accounts are not for everyone every year so be sure to plan accordingly as there are no refunds provided and accounts can only be closed mid-year under certain circumstances.
