When Coverage Begins
If You Are an Employee
If you enroll during Annual Benefits Enrollment, your coverage will be effective January 1 and you will continue to participate for the full calendar year (January through December).
If You Are a Newly Hired or Newly Eligible Employee
If you enroll, coverage will be effective on the first of the month following your hire date if you are a full-time employee. If you are a part-time employee, coverage will be effective the first day of the month following 60 days from your date of hire.
You will continue to participate from the effective date through the end of the calendar year. If you go on a leave of absence and not receiving payroll deductions, your participation will continue as long as you continue to pay applicable premiums.
