In most circumstances, when an employee terminates the District Health Insurance coverage ends on the last day of the month following the date of termination. In situations where a contracted employee has completed the contracted school year, but decided to not renew employment for the next contract school year, their coverage will continue to the end of the contract period.
Terminated employees can continue coverage through the District if they enroll in COBRA coverage. Employees will be sent a notification once the District Coverage ends. Terminated employees have 63 days to enroll in COBRA coverage. Once enrolled the coverage will be reinstated back to the date coverage was lost. COBRA enrollees will pay the full cost of the monthly insurance premiums plus a 2% administrative fee.
Flexible Spending participants: Please be aware Flex spending cards will be deactivated upon termination with the District. Claims will need to be submitted manually for processing. Only services rendered prior to the date of termination will be eligible for reimbursement. Any unused funds at the end of the plan year will be forfeited. All of this is according to IRS Guidelines.
