Below are the monthly rates for adjunct and part-time faculty and staff who elect to enroll in the State Health Benefits Program pursuant to the legislation that was signed in 2003. Those adjunct and part-time faculty who choose to enroll must do so during the annual Open Enrollment period annually, which will take place during the month of October. The same window exists for adjunct and part-time faculty who have just joined PERS, because they are employed for their third consecutive semester, or who expect to begin their third consecutive semester in January. So, even if the fall semester is only your second consecutive semester working as a State college adjunct faculty, but you anticipate working in the spring semester, you can still apply in October. If you work in the spring semester, your application will be accepted.
administrative costs and separate rating, the premium for adjuncts is 110% of the standard rate for whichever plan you choose. The rates in the PDF below reflect the additional 10%. Please note that you are classified as Monthly Employees for these purposes. Once enrolled, you will be direct billed by the State in the amount of the State Contribution plus the administrative fee. Applications are also available online below. The Council will closely monitor
College/University compliance with State regulations to insure that all
employees who wish to participate receive this new benefit.
