Big Sandy Area Development District      Policy Manual

Health Insurance

The health insurance plan at Big Sandy ADD offers employees and their dependents access to medical insurance benefits. Employees in the following employment classifications are eligible to participate in the health insurance plan:

* Regular full-time employees

* Regular part-time employees

To be eligible to participate you must also participate in the County Employees Retirement System. Eligible employees may participate in the health insurance plan subject to the terms and conditions of the agreement between Big Sandy ADD and the insurance carrier.

If you change to an employment classification that would cause you to lose your health insurance plan eligibility, you may qualify to continue your health care benefits under the Consolidated Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act (COBRA). Refer to the Benefits Continuation (COBRA) Policy in this manual for more information.

You will receive details of the health insurance plan in the orientation phase when you begin employment. When you become eligible, you will receive a packet with requirements and rate information prior to the enrollment date. For questions about health insurance, contact the Accounting Department for additional information.
