Bright Horizons - Caregiving and Family Supports Benefits
The BlueEdge Consumer Driven Health Plan (CDHP) will be available to all eligible part-time faculty and staff. The university will pay a portion of the premium and the faculty or staff member will be responsible for the remaining premium payable through pre-tax payroll deductions. Premiums will be calculated on an annual calendar year basis, determined as of the beginning of the eligibility period, and divided by the number of paychecks to be received during the year to calculate the per pay period deduction amount. Generally, staff will have 24 deductions during the calendar year and faculty will have 16 deductions during the part of the academic year in which they are paid.
The Consumer Driven Health Plan (CDHP) combines a High Deductible Health Plan (HDHP) with a
Health Savings Account (HSA) that allows pre-tax contributions to be set aside in an interest-bearing account to cover eligible medical, dental and vision expenses, as well as future health care premiums, such as those required for COBRA. The HSA is partially funded by the university, with the option for employees to contribute additional pre-tax funds.
Dental coverage will be available through the university’s dental plan with Blue Cross Blue Shield. The part-time faculty or staff member will be responsible for paying the full premium through pre-tax payroll deductions.
