Effective Date

Coverage for new employees will become effective on the first day of the second calendar month following your date of hire. Example: if you begin any time in August, you are eligible for coverage Oct. 1. New employees may make their elections online in KHRIS or may complete an enrollment application within the first 35 calendar days of employment.

If you fail to make your health insurance election or waive coverage within the designated time frame, you will not have coverage and will not be allowed to enroll until the next open enrollment period, unless an appropriate qualifying event occurs.

How does the deductible accumulate? ​

If you have more than one family member covered under your plan, one family member may satisfy the individual $370 deductible and the remaining $370 family deductible may be met by any combination of the remaining family member's claims up to the $740 family deductible maximum.

Guidelines ​ ​ ​

        • No single family member will pay more than $370 in deductible;
        • No single family member can contribute more than $370 to the family deductible maximum; and
        • Of the $740 family maximum deductible, $370 can be met by a family member and the remaining $370 can be met by a combination of additional family members; or
        • All family members' services can be combined and applied to meet the family $740 deductible.
        • Deductibles and out-of-pocket maximums accumulate separately and do not cross apply.
