Employee Health and Welfare Benefits - Open Enrollment 2020

Before you enroll, please read the important information below:

Open Enrollment for 2020 is from October 14 - 25, 2019. Please complete the process below prior to the end of Open Enrollment to ensure your benefits will continue on January 1, 2020.

There are no plan changes, no co-pay increases and no employee contribution increases for 2020. However, there is now the ability to register a Domestic Partner under the State of California's revised definition.

Registered Domestic Partner:

On July 30, 2019, Governor Newson signed into law Senate Bill 30, which broadened the definition of a registered domestic partner. Under the prior definition, registered domestic partners were required to satisfy a number of conditions, including that they had to be either: 1) of the same sex; or 2) of the opposite sex with one or both partners over 62 years of age. SB 30 removed the age 62 requirement for opposite sex domestic partners. As a result, couples that are of the opposite sex can now be registered domestic partners, regardless of age. However, other requirements must still be met for domestic partners to avail themselves of their rights under state law, including the requirement to register their domestic partnership with the California Secretary of State.

If you would like to enroll a Registered Domestic Partner, please contact Paola to provide the appropriate documentation from the State of California prior to adding a domestic partner during this enrollment process.

 

Also, as a reminder, the following additions/changes were made for 2019 and will continue into 2020.

 

Certificated Staff Changes:

Starting in January, 2019, any certificated staff member were able to decline the contractual medical insurance requirement. If you would like to decline medical coverage in 2020,  fill out a short form below (the form will only be required once and you will be able to select "continue to decline" in future enrollments, if you so choose). If you decline benefits, your current medical coverage will cease on Dec 30, 2019.

Classified Staff Changes:

Starting in January, 2019, classified staff who work 34 or more hours per week (0.85 FTE) qualify for full time medical benefits and pay the employee contribution of $145 tenthly (if selecting single party medical insurance). Staff who work 30 hours per week to 33.99 hours per week (0.75 FTE to 0.84 FTE)  pay a flat rate of $200 tenthly for single party medical insurance. Medical plans that include the addition of a spouse or family will remain as in the past which included a pro-rata share of the premium, plus a pro-rata share of the employee out-of-pocket contribution. As in the past, part-time employees may also purchase Dental and Vision for an additional cost.
