2017/2018 Premiums for Part-Time Employees:

Due to vendor changes in 2018, all participants in the part-time employee PPO Blue Plan through Highmark, will be moved to the applicable part-time employee PPO Plan through Aetna. The following provisions will still apply.

Individuals who became eligible on or before December 31, 2014 for the part-time health care plan will continue to be eligible for such provisions, provided:

  1. There is no involuntary or voluntary separation from University employment, for example if the employee leaves University employment for any period of time
  2. The employee continues to be enrolled in the part-time health care plan, with applicable payment of health care plan premiums, with no drop of coverage
  3. The employee transfers into a full-time benefits eligible position.

See Policy HR103 Employment Conditions for Part-Time, Intermittent/Short-Term & Full-Time Student Employees for established criteria for those grandfathered under discontinued Policy HR05 prior to December 31, 2014.

As previously communicated with the discontinuation of Policy HR05, there will no longer be an open enrollment period for part-time employees covered under this grandfathered plan. Changes may only be made with a qualifying life status change (marriage, divorce, birth, adoption, etc.).
