Premier Nursing Employer-offered Insurance Policy
Premier Nursing provides group health to all active employees who are normally scheduled to work 30 or more hours per week. Details concerning available plans, level of coverage and premium costs
are in the benefit information provided during new hire orientation or available from Human Resources.
Insurance coverage begins on the first of the month following the date of hire. All necessary enrollment forms must be completed by the employee before this date. Current part-time employees who become full-time employees will be notified by Human Resources when they are eligible to enroll.
You have the option of waiving all pre-tax benefits. Should you choose to waive these benefits, you will not have another opportunity to elect them until the next Open Enrollment Period, and any after tax coverage permitted by Premier Nursing will be outside the plan. The only exception to this is in the case of a Change in Election Event for an applicable benefit. Some common Change in Election Events include changes in employment status, divorce and marriage. In these circumstances, the election change must be on account of and consistent with the Change in Election Event, as described in the Plan.
As a result of termination, a reduction in work hours or in the event that an employee goes on military leave or takes another extended leave of absence, an employee may be eligible to continue the company’s group coverage by paying the monthly premium. More information will be provided when an employee becomes eligible for continuation coverage.
Employees are urged to consult the insurance summary plan description for details of the plan benefits. The plan document controls payment of any benefits.
Enrollment in group insurance is voluntary. There will be no increase in wages if an employee waives coverage. For inquiries, contact the Human Resources department.
