2013-2014 UNC Postdoc Medical Insurance RatesJune 12, 2013 |
We wanted to give you an update on the Blue Cross Blue Shield of North Carolina 2013-2014 UNC Postdoc Medical Insurance Plan.
Effective July 1, the rate to insure a Postdoc will increase to $254.75 per month. Also the Campus Health fee will be increasing from $47.67 to $48.25 per month. For those Postdocs with insured spouses, their monthly premium will increase to $280.24. The monthly premium to cover children will be $203.81 (the child rate does not depend on the number of children enrolled).
If a spouse and/ or children are not currently insured under this plan, the Postdoc may add them with an effective date of July 1 , during the open-enrollment period (July 1 through July 31).
An updated Postdoc enrollment packet will be available here by July 1.
Please remember: Coverage for new postdocs will be effective on the first day of the month following the month when their appointment begins (e.g. if a postdoc has an appointment date of July 1, their coverage would become effective Aug. 1; if the appointment date is July 9, then coverage would be effective Aug. 1).
It will be imperative that all new hire actions as well as termination actions that you process for your postdocs through EPAWeb are entered in a timely manner so that established payroll deadlines for these actions are met each cycle. Click here for deadlines.
