Kaiser Permanente

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 was held September 9, 2019 through September 20, 2019.   If you were eligible and did not enroll, you will need to wait until next semester's enrollment period (held in February) to enroll.  Exceptions may be made for anyone who has lost their other coverage or has a qualifying life event which may allow them to enroll mid-semester.  Please contact Human Resources by emailing or calling 408.223.6713 for assistance.  

Participants must recertify each semester to continue coverage.  

To qualify:

    • You must carry at least a 40% cumulative equivalent load of a minimum full-time faculty assignment (either instructional or non-instructional).  If your load is reduced after that time or classes are cancelled, you may still be eligible to participate or you will be offered continuation coverage (COBRA).
    • 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 and January for fall semester participants, and March, April, May and June paychecks for spring semester enrollees. 
    • Included with this Kaiser plan is access to the AnthemEAP (Employee Assistance Plan).
