There are Two Paths to Insurance for Part-Time Faculty
1.) Group Insurance Through the College
The insurance is earned in the academic year (September- August) prior to enrollment. A Faculty member must work 1.5 FTE for the Academic year or approximately six four credit classes over the course of an academic year, Fall through Summer.
A large packet is mailed in early August to your home if you meet this threshold, 1.5 FTE. The enrollment period is August 15th to September 15th with insurance beginning on October 1st and running until September 30 of the following year.
If offered insurance you MUST go on line and either enroll in a plan or Opt-Out of the insurance.
Article 18.6 in the Faculty Agreement describes the Group Insurance through the college.
2.) Partial Reimbursement for Insurance Purchased
Partial reimbursement for the cost of your medical insurance policy is through the Health Insurance Trust Fund administered by the Federation. The Federation has negotiated with the College for $40,000 per academic year or $10,000 per term for the Health Insurance Trust.
