Medical coverage is provided by Paramount Health Care for classified staff working at least 20 hours per week or certified staff working at least 1/6 FTE. Employee share of premium is prorated based on hours/FTE status.
Starting in 2019, employees whose spouse's employer or retirement system provides and pays for at least 50% of the cost of health insurance for single coverage must have the spouse's plan and enroll the spouse in that coverage.
Open enrollment typically ocurrs in October or November. Additions or changes due to a qualifying event such as marraige, birth, etc. must be made within 30 days of the event.
Dependents may be covered until the age of 26.
