Summer Coverage for Faculty

Benefits eligible faculty members that are assigned to work on a nine-month basis during the spring semester (January 16 through May 31) may be eligible for insurance coverage during the summer months of June, July and August.  You'll get detailed information about summer coverage by email in April.

The university will contribute its portion of premiums (premium sharing) toward your summer insurance coverage. The monthly cost of your insurance coverage will be identical to the premiums paid during the spring semester. Any out-of-pocket costs for benefits during the summer months will be deducted from your June 1 paycheck. To determine your cost complete the following steps:

  • Login to "My Insurance Benefits”
  • Select "My Benefit Costs", (top left below Navigation Menu)
  • Multiply your monthly cost times four

The value calculated reflects your prepay premium for your summer insurance coverage that will be applied on your June 1 paycheck.

Annual Enrollment

Regardless of summer employment or not, all employees who remain benefits eligible during the summer months should participate in Annual Enrollment. Annual Enrollment occurs in the month of July each year and is your opportunity to make insurance plan and coverage changes for the upcoming plan year, which begins September 1 and continues through the following August 31.

Please review the Annual Enrollment website each year to ensure you stay up-to-date and take any needed action. You will also receive important information about Annual Enrollment by e-mail during June and July.
