Cost of the Plan


The University pays the full premium for regular full-time employees' coverage (subject to change each year, based on renewal of program contracts).

For regular part-time employees (.5 FTE through .79 FTE for Staff and .5 FTE through .74 for Faculty), the University pays a prorated portion of the premium for employee coverage, based on the the employee's FTE. Employees pay the remainder of the employee premium via payroll deduction. The employee rate is noted below.

Employees who elect spouse and/or children coverage pay for the entire cost of their dependents' premiums by payroll deduction.

All dental insurance premiums deducted from employee earnings are taken on a pretax basis.
