CKD(LOCAL) - INSURANCE AND ANNUITIES MANAGEMENT: HEALTH AND LIFE INSURANCE

College District Contribution

The College District shall contribute the following amounts to the health insurance premiums for employees eligible to participate in the Texas Employees Group Benefits Program:

  1. For an eligible full-time employee who works at least 30 hours per week, 100 percent to the premiums for the employee and 50 percent to the premiums for that employee's eligible dependents.
  2. For an eligible part-time employee who works less than 30 hours per week, 50 percent to the premiums for the employee and 25 percent to the premiums for that employee's eligible dependents.

The Board may allocate funds as part of the annual budget development and adoption process for contributions to employee premiums for any additional health and life insurance programs available to employees.

Ineligibility of Employees Performing Services Outside Texas

If at least 75 percent of an employee's services are performed outside Texas, then the employee may not participate in the Texas Employees Group Benefits Program unless the employee was employed by the College District on August 31, 1999, and is otherwise eligible. The College District will provide competitive marketplace health insurance options for an ineligible employee in accordance with College District regulations.

Outside Texas

An employee's services are performed outside Texas if they are performed while the employee is located outside Texas and do not include instruction to any College District student who is located in-state.

Continuation Coverage

The College District shall continue its contribution toward the cost of the employee's group health insurance coverage while the employee is on paid leave or, if applicable, while the employee is on family and medical leave. [See DEC]

The College District shall not otherwise expend public funds for group health insurance coverage of an employee who is not on paid leave status. However, an employee who is not on paid leave status or Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) leave shall be allowed to continue group health insurance coverage, at his or her own expense, for the period specified in the College District's group health insurance plan.
