Long Term Care Insurance
Employees working at least 800 hours per fiscal year are eligible to purchase Long Term Care insurance for themselves and eligible family members. The Long Term Care insurance offered is flexible, allowing employees to purchase a plan that works for them.
Long Term Care is the type of care received at either a home or a facility, when assistance is needed with the activities of daily living (bathing, dressing, toileting, transferring, continence and eating), or suffers severe cognitive impairment (such as Alzheimer’s disease).
Employees are eligible for coverage on the first of the month following their date of hire. This is an individual and personalized benefit that is paid entirely by the employee. Each employee has 30 days to enroll in coverage with guarantee issue, however if an employee enrolls with maximum coverage allowed he/she will need to provide evidence of insurability. Employees are eligible to enroll at anytime; however, they may be subject to providing evidence of insurability.
Upon termination from the University, employees are given the opportunity to convert their insurance.
