Health Insurance

All full-time and part-time benefited employees are eligible for a health insurance plan administered through the Group Insurance Commission that covers the employee, their spouse and dependent children (under the age of 19). Coverage is effective on the first of the month following 60 calendar days of employment.

Employees are eligible to join a health plan during their first 10 working days of employment. Changes to health plans may also be made during annual enrollment in April-May each year. There are other qualifying events (i.e. birth/adoption of a child, marriage, divorce, loss of spouse's benefits, etc.) that allow for enrollment in health plans outside of the annual enrollment period. Please contact the Benefits Office for more information.

  • Employees with a hire date on or before June 30, 2003, pay 20% of the premium.
  • Employees with a hire date after June 30, 2003, pay 25% of the premium

Use the form below to add your dependent ages 19-26 during the GIC’s Annual Enrollment, when your dependent changes to a full-time student living outside of the plan’s service area, or is no longer a full-time student.  You will need to offer proof of loss of other health coverage.  If you have a child already on your insurance who then turns age19 but has no changes (or is not a student) you do not need to make any changes.

Please keep in mind the following:

  • The insured must have family plan coverage.
  • The GIC will determine eligibility and effective dates

You MUST notify the GIC when your dependent age 19 to 26 is no longer a full-time student or has moved out of the health plan’s service area.
