HEALTH INSURANCE PLAN: Due to healthcare reform, a new hire needs to actively enroll in or waive the Archdiocesan Health Insurance plan. New hires should use enrollment forms to elect or waive the health insurance plan and/or the flexible spending accounts (FSA). Healthcare reform does not require waiving the FSA plan. Please keep a copy of the employee's forms in their employee medical file.

New hires do not have access to enroll in benefits online with Employee Self Service, except for their Open Enrollment Period between May 1 through May 15 each year. An employee would complete all the benefit forms and give them to you.

We no longer are required to give a former employee a HIPAA Certificate of Creditable Coverage. If an employee asks for health insurance verification, you may have them contact the Office of Human Resources at 314.792.7546.

Special Note: If your employee is terminating his/her coverage or a dependent's coverage from the health insurance plan, please give a "reason" for termination on the Employee Benefits Information Form for the health insurance cancellation. The health insuance ends on the last day of employment, not the end of the month of cancellation.

If you have an employee terminating from the health insurance plan, please remember to do the following:

3. Remind the employee that the health plan coverage ends on the date of the last day of employment, not at the end of that month.

4. Send the Office of Human Resources the termination forms canceling the health insurance as an active employee. Please give the former employee the Continuation of Coverage Provision. The Office of Human Resources will provide all notices and forms for enrollment in the Continuation of Coverage or Early Retiree Plans, once we receive your parish/school/agency termination forms.
