Adjunct Faculty


To All Adjunct Faculty:

The District is pleased to offer a medical plan for adjunct faculty who qualify.  Enrollment for the plan, offered through Kaiser Permanente, is available each semester to employees and their eligible dependents.  If enrolled during spring semester, coverage is effective March 1st through August 31st; and September 1st through February 28th during fall semester.  You will be required to re-enroll/re-certify, if eligible, each semester.  

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 a specific day the first month of each semester.  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.
  • 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 for yourself, and 100% of the premium for any eligible dependent(s). 

Eligible dependents may be enrolled at full cost to the employee.  (A copy of the first page your prior year federal tax return is required to enroll your spouse; a copy of your State Registry for Domestic Partners is required to enroll your 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. 

Full Monthly Premium thru September 30, 2020:
​Employee Only
​Employee + Spouse
​Employee + Child/ren

Of these amounts, the District will contribute 50% of the monthly Employee Only cost ($413.00).

The pre-tax deduction from your paycheck will be as follows:

​Employee Only
​Employee + Spouse
​Employee + Children
​​March, April, May & June
Enrollees pay for their six months of coverage through four payroll deductions each semester (March, April, May and June during the spring and October, November, December and January in the fall).  

Those enrolled in this plan will be automatically enrolled in an employee assistance plan, AnthemEAP that offers confidential counseling services, and legal and financial planning assistance to you and anyone living in your household.  

If you are currently enrolled in the District's plan  you MUST submit the Verification of Eligibility Form to Human Resources each semester for your coverage to continue into the following semester.  Please also submit the form if you are no longer eligible or wish to end coverage (by checking the appropriate box).  LATE FORMS WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED.

All new or returning enrollees (not currently enrolled in the District's Kaiser Plan) must complete both the Verification of Eligibility Form and a Kaiser Enrollment Form.    LATE FORMS WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED. 

To enroll, you must submit the following:
Kaiser Permanente Enrollment Form (full packet including Plan Summary is included)
