The Employee Health Insurance Plan and the Spousal Surcharge Policy
Spousal Surcharge Policy
Beginning July 1, 2017, the health insurance plan will be implementing a spousal surcharge, whereby employees will pay an additional cost to cover a spouse who is eligible for employer-subsidized health insurance coverage.
The spousal surcharge of $125.00 per month is in addition to the usual employee contribution cost. If this spousal surcharge applies to you, you will want to consider how the additional cost may impact your coverage choice during Open Enrollment 2017. There are some exemptions to the spousal surcharge.
Please read the Employee Memo below and understand the new spousal surcharge policy.
It is important to read the Spousal Surcharge Frequently Asked Questions for greater details in the document below:
For Open Enrollment 2017 in order to be exempt from the spousal surcharge effective July 1, 2017, you must submit your online Spousal Surcharge Exemption Form no later than May 15th, 2017.
