General Eligibility & Enrollment

Please see FAQ for detailed Benefit Eligibility information. Generally, an employee hired for more than six months at half-time or more is eligible for benefits. New employees may be covered as soon as the first day of the month following their date of hire and may cover their eligible dependents. Less than full time employees who work an equivalent of 75% of full time may be eligible for Health coverage (only) under the Affordable Care Act. Submission of enrollment forms are time critical and late submission may impact your coverage start date.
