Additional information regarding eligibility, enrollment and cost

To qualify: 

  • You must carry at least a 40% cumulative equivalent load of a minimum full-time faculty assignment (either instructional or non-instructional) as of February 17, 2023.  If your load is reduced after that time or classes are cancelled, you may still be eligible to participate or may be offered COBRA continuation coverage. If your load this semester includes a late start class, your coverage will not be effective until the first of the month after your late start class begins, unless you have a 40% load without including the late start class.  Please contact Michelle directly at so we can determine your effective date in advance and set up your enrollment window.     
  • You may not have any other medical coverage and must sign a statement verifying that you have no other coverage.  (Those who decline/do not enroll because they have other health coverage who then lose eligibility or lose employer contributions may enroll mid-year provided they notify within 30 days of the loss of other coverage and submit the proper forms timely.)
