You are eligible for the Waiver Dental/Vision Only HRA if you are an employee of a state agency, school board or certain quasi-governmental agencies, or if you are a retiree who has returned to work and is over age 65, and you are eligible for health insurance coverage. You are not eligible if you are a member of an agency that doesn’t participate in KEHPs HRA/FSA program, or if you are a retiree, under age 65 who has returned to work and elected coverage through retirement.
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 anytime in August, you are eligible for coverage October 1. New employees may make their elections online in KHRIS or they 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.
Funds can be used for dental and vision services such as contacts, glasses, orthodontics, root canals, and routine dental check-ups.
