Part IV. Employee Participation

1VAC55-20-320. Eligible employees.

A. State employees.

1. Full-time salaried, classified employees as defined in 1VAC55-20-20 and faculty are eligible for membership in the health benefits program.

2. Certain full-time employees in auxiliary enterprises (such as food services, bookstores, laundry services, etc.) at the University of Virginia, Virginia Military Institute, and the College of William and Mary as well as other state institutions of higher learning are also considered state employees even though they do not receive a salaried state paycheck. The Athletic Department of Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University is an example of a local auxiliary whose members are eligible for the program.

3. Certain full-time employees of the Medical College of Virginia Hospital Authority are eligible for the program as long as they are on the authority's payroll and were enrolled in the program on November 1, 1996. They may have payroll deductions for health benefits premiums even if they rotate to the Veterans' Administration Hospital or other acute care facility.

4. Other employees identified in the Code of Virginia as eligible for the program.

5. Classified positions include employees who are fully covered by the Virginia Personnel Act, employees excluded from the Virginia Personnel Act by subdivision 16 of § 2.2-2905 of the Code of Virginia, and employees on a restricted appointment. A restricted appointment is a classified appointment to a position that is funded at least 10% from gifts, grants, donations, or other sources that are not identifiable as continuing in nature. An employee on a restricted appointment must receive a state paycheck in order to be eligible.

B. Local employees.

1. Full-time employees of participating local employers are eligible to participate in the program. A full-time employee is one who meets the definition set forth by the local employer in the employer application.

2. Part-time employees of local employers may participate in the plan if the local employer elects and the election does not discriminate among part-time employees. In order for the local employer to cover part-time employees, the local employer must provide to the department a definition of what constitutes a part-time employee.

The department reserves the right to establish a separate plan for part-time employees.

C. Unavailability of employer-sponsored coverage.

1. Employees, officers, and teachers without access to employer-sponsored health care coverage may participate in the plan. The employers of such employees, officers, and teachers must apply for participation and certify that other employer-sponsored health care coverage is not available. The employers shall collect contributions from such individuals and timely remit them to the department or its designee, act as a channel of communication with the covered employee and otherwise assist the department as may be necessary. The employer shall act as fiduciary with respect to such contributions and shall be responsible for any interest or other charges imposed by the department in accordance with these regulations.

2. Local employees living outside the service area of the plan offered by their local employer shall not be considered as local employees whose local employers do not offer a health benefits plan. For example, a local employee who lives in North Carolina and works in Virginia may live outside the service area of the HMO offered by his employer; however, he may not join the program individually.

3. Employer sponsorship of a health benefits plan will be broadly construed. For example, an employer will be deemed to sponsor health care coverage for purposes of this section and 1VAC55-20-260 if it utilizes § 125 of the Internal Revenue Code or any similar provision to allow employees, officers, or teachers to contribute their portion of the health care contribution on a pretax basis.

4. Individual employees and dependents who are eligible to join the program under the provisions of this subsection must meet all of the eligibility requirements pertaining to state employees except the identity of the employer.

D. Retirees.

1. Retirees are not eligible to enroll in the state retiree health benefits group outside of the opportunities provided in this section.

2. Retirees are eligible for membership in the state retiree group if a completed enrollment form is received within 31 days of separation for retirement. Retirees who remain in the health benefits group through a spouse's state employee membership may enroll in the retiree group at one of three later times: (i) future open enrollment, (ii) within 31 days of a qualifying mid-year event, or (iii) within 31 days of being removed from the active state employee spouse's membership.

3. Membership in the retiree group may be provided to an employee's spouse or dependents who were covered in the active employee group at the time of the employee's death in service.

4. Retirees who have attained the age of 65 or are otherwise covered or eligible for Medicare may enroll in certain plans as determined by the department provided that they apply for such coverage within 31 days of their separation from active service for retirement. Medicare will be the primary payor and the program shall serve as a supplement to Medicare's coverage.

5. Retirees who are ineligible for Medicare must apply for coverage within 31 days of their separation from active service for retirement. In order to receive coverage, the individual must meet the retirement requirements of his employer and receive an immediate annuity. For local employers, the immediate annuity requirement is not applicable as long as the retiree meets the age and service requirements imposed by the plan.

6. Local employers may offer retiree coverage at their option.

E. Dependents. The following family members may be covered if the employee elects:

1. The employee's spouse. The marriage must be recognized as legal in the Commonwealth of Virginia.

2. Children. Under the health benefits program, the following eligible children may be covered to the end of the year in which they turn age 26 (age requirement is waived for adult incapacitated children):

a. Natural children, adopted children, or children placed for adoption.

b. Stepchildren. A stepchild is the natural or legally adopted child of the participant's legal spouse. Such marriage must be recognized by the Commonwealth of Virginia.

c. Incapacitated children.

(1) Adult children who are incapacitated due to a physical or mental health condition, as long as the child was covered by the plan and the incapacitation existed prior to the termination of coverage due to the child attaining the limiting age. The employee must make written application, along with proof of incapacitation, prior to the child reaching the limiting age. Such extension of coverage must be approved by the plan and is subject to periodic review. Should the plan find that the child no longer meets the criteria for coverage as an incapacitated child, the child's coverage will be terminated at the end of the month following notification from the plan to the enrollee. The child must live with the employee as a member of the employee's household, be unmarried, and be dependent upon the employee for financial support. In the case of a divorce, living with the spouse will satisfy the condition of living with the employee. Furthermore, the support test is met if either the employee or spouse or combination of the employee and spouse provide over one half of the child's financial support.

(2) Adult incapacitated children of new employees may also be covered, provided that:

(a) The enrollment form is submitted within 30 days of hire;

(b) The child has been covered continuously by group employer coverage since the disability first occurred; and

(c) The disability commenced prior to the child attaining the limiting age of the plan.

The enrollment form must be accompanied by a letter from a physician explaining the nature of the incapacitation, providing the date of onset, and certifying that the dependent is not capable of self-support. This extension of coverage must be approved by the plan in which the employee is enrolled.

d. Other children. A child for whom a court has ordered the employee to assume sole permanent custody.

Additionally, if the employee or spouse shares custody with the minor child who is the parent of the "other child," then the other child may be covered.

When a child loses eligibility, coverage terminates at the end of the month in which the event that causes the loss of eligibility occurs.

There are certain categories of persons who may not be covered as dependents under the program. These include dependent siblings, grandchildren, nieces, and nephews except where the criteria for "other children" are satisfied. Parents, grandparents, aunts, and uncles are not eligible for coverage regardless of dependency status.

1VAC55-20-330. Enrollment form or enrollment action.

A. No coverage is available unless an employee files an enrollment form or takes an equivalent enrollment action. No changes in coverage are effective unless an employee files an enrollment form or takes an equivalent enrollment action. Employees alone are responsible for knowing when an enrollment action is required, for taking the action, and for certifying that the information conveyed is complete and true.

B. The employer is responsible for checking that the employee fills in the form completely and accurately. The employer will certify each enrollment form in the space provided on the form.

C. The effective date of coverage shall be determined from the date the enrollment form is stamped as received by a designee of the department or the date of the equivalent enrollment action. This is generally the first of the month following receipt.

Except as noted here, coverage elections including those made by new employees are made on a prospective basis, that is, effective the first of the month following the receipt of the election form or enrollment action. However, if the receipt of the form or the date of the enrollment action is the first of the month, then the effective date will be the first of the month. Additionally, if an election form or enrollment action is received from a new employee on the first business day of the month, coverage for the new employee will commence on the first day of that month (see 1VAC55-20-370). Coverage elections made on account of a newborn, adoption, or placement for adoption are effective the date the child is born, adopted, or placed for adoption, as long as the employee makes the coverage election within 60 days of the event. Coverage terminations are effective the end of the month following receipt of an election notice, except for terminations that are required by the plan. Coverage terminations required by the plan are effective the end of the month that the event takes place. Examples of coverage terminations required by the plan are such things as a divorce, termination of employment, or a dependent child losing eligibility.

1VAC55-20-340. Payment of contributions.

A. Active employees shall pay their portion, if any, of contributions through payroll deduction.

B. State retirees will have their contributions deducted from VRS or other retirement system. If the retirement payment is not sufficient to pay the entire contribution, they may pay their contributions directly to the department's designee. There may be an administrative fee for direct payment. Such fee may be waived by the department if payment is made monthly by bank draft.

A credit toward the cost of coverage is made by the Commonwealth on behalf of retired state employees as provided in § 51.1-1400 of the Code of Virginia.

C. Retired employees of local employers shall pay contributions by either of two methods. The retired employee may authorize contributions to be deducted from the retiree's pension payment, whether it be through the VRS or otherwise. Alternatively, if the employer so provides, the retiree may pay his contribution to the employer who shall be responsible for remitting the contributions to the department or its designee. In either case the employer is responsible for collecting and submitting the premium to the plan at the time that the active premium is submitted.

1VAC55-20-350. Membership.

A. Type of membership. Participants have a choice of three types of membership under the program:

1. Single (employee only). If a participant chooses employee only membership, the health benefits program does not cover the employee's dependents (spouse or children).

2. Dual (employee and one eligible dependent).

3. Family membership (employee and two or more eligible dependents).

B. Changing type of membership.

1. Employees may change membership subject to 1VAC55-20-370.

a. During open enrollment.

b. Within no more than 60 days of a qualifying mid-year event. Any such change in membership must be on account of and consistent with the event.

c. Within no more than 60 days of a cost and coverage change, as acknowledged by the department.

2. All changes in membership must be made on a prospective basis except for the birth, adoption, or placement for adoption of a child.

3. If the change is from single to dual or family membership or vice versa because of a qualifying mid-year event, the employee must certify in the enrollment action the type of event and the date of the event.

1VAC55-20-360. Choice of plans.

A. During the annual open enrollment period, state employees and non-Medicare retirees eligible to participate in the health benefits program have a choice of enrolling in any plan offered by their employer, which may often include an alternative health benefits plan offered by the department. To be eligible for membership in the health benefits program, the employee or retiree must live or work within the service area of the particular plan.

B. Employees of participating local employers have a choice of enrolling in the plans offered by their respective employers. Local employers have the option of requiring that employees live within the service area of the plan the employee chooses to join or of allowing employees to join a plan if they live or work in the service area.

C. An enrollment action will not be accepted outside of open enrollment except for an employee who experiences a qualifying mid-year event.

D. The employer's contribution toward coverage, if any, shall be determined by the employer except with respect to the minimum contribution rate applicable to local employers.

1VAC55-20-370. Effective date of coverage.

A. Newly eligible employees. Newly eligible employees (new hires) have up to 30 calendar days to enroll in a health plan or flexible spending account offered by the state. The 30-day countdown period begins on the first day of employment and ends 30 calendar days later. If the enrollment action is received within the 30-calendar-day time frame, coverage will be effective the first of the month coinciding with or following the date of employment. There is no discretion allowed in this area. Coverage will always be effective in this manner. In no case will coverage begin before the eligible employee's first day of employment.

B. Qualifying mid-year events. Employees who experience a qualifying mid-year event have 60 calendar days to make a consistent election change. The 60-day countdown period begins on the day of the event. Normally changes will be effective the first of the month following receipt of the enrollment action.

C. Terminations required by the plan. Employees can only provide coverage for family members who meet the health plans' eligibility definition.

1VAC55-20-380. Leave of absence.

Note: This section addresses various aspects of employee leave and may or may not be applicable to a local employer.

A. Leave of absence with full pay. As long as an employee is still receiving full pay, health benefits coverage continues with the employer making its contribution. No action is required.

Local employers are not required to contribute toward coverage for any part-time employee granted any type of leave of absence.

B. Virginia Sickness and Disability Program, Long-Term Disability (VSDP-LTD).

1. LTD-working employees continue in active coverage until the end of the month in which the employee transitions to LTD-not working.

2. Coverage with the employer contribution continues to the end of the month in which the LTD benefits begin, unless benefits begin on the first day of the month, in which case the employer contribution will end on the last day of the preceding month. Thereafter, employees may continue coverage by paying the entire cost of the coverage.

3. Employees receiving LTD benefits may enroll in the State Retiree Health Benefits Program upon service retirement regardless of whether they have maintained health coverage in the state program provided that the individuals have been continuously covered and have had no break in long-term disability benefits prior to service retirement. The LTD participant has 31 days from the date of retirement to enroll in the State Retiree Health Benefits Program. Coverage in the retiree group begins on the first day of the first full month of retirement.

C. Educational leave -- full or partial pay. An official educational leave is a leave for educational reasons with partial or full pay maintained for the leave, not for work rendered. It is possible to maintain health coverage on an educational leave even when less than full pay is given provided that at least half pay is given. Coverage may continue for the duration of the leave up to 24 months.

D. Leave of absence without pay.

1. Coverage with the employer contribution continues to the end of the month in which the leave without pay begins provided the first day of the leave is after the first work day of the month. If the person returns from leave the following month and works at least half of the workdays in the month, coverage will be continuous. If the leave without pay begins on or before the first work day of the month, coverage and the employer contribution ceases on the last calendar day of the previous month.

2. Employees who do not want to continue coverage will be asked to sign a waiver.

E. Changing coverage while on leave. Coverage changes may be made while on leave in the same manner that changes may be made while actively employed. The same procedures and rules apply.

An employee enrolled in an alternative health benefits plan who moves out of the plan's service area while on a leave of absence may change to another plan offered by the department in his new location by taking an enrollment action within 60 days of the date of the move.

F. Returning from leave without pay.

1. Employees who have maintained coverage while on leave without pay. If the employee has maintained coverage while on leave, the employee's coverage in the health benefits program (with the employer making its contribution) will begin on the first of the month following the date the employee returns to full-time employment. However, if the return to work falls on the first day of the month then the employer contributions may begin immediately. It is not necessary for the employee to take a new enrollment action.

Employees may change from single to dual or family membership within 60 days of returning from leave without pay if the employee dropped dual or family membership during the leave or if there was a qualifying mid-year event during the leave. A new enrollment action must be taken. In the case of a qualifying mid-year event, the effective date would follow the rule on initiating dual or family membership at the time of the particular qualifying mid-year event.

2. Employees who have not maintained coverage while on leave will be treated in the same manner as new employees, unless they have exercised their rights under the Family Medical Leave Act. If these rights are exercised, they will have all rights that are required by law.

a. It shall be necessary to take a new enrollment action to receive coverage. The enrollment action shall indicate the date the employee returned to work as the date that the employee's continuous full-time employment commenced.

b. The employee has a choice of type of membership and plan.

c. The usual deadlines for filing apply. Coverage begins according to the rules and procedures for new employees.

3. Employees returning from military leave for active service. Employees returning from military leave of 30 days or more have the same choice of coverage as a new employee. If the employee returning from a military leave applies for coverage within 31 days of discharge, the coverage will begin on either the first day of the month of discharge or the first of the following month, whichever is necessary to effect continuous coverage.

4. Taking a second leave without pay. If an employee returns from a leave without pay and is employed full-time on every scheduled work day for at least one full calendar month before taking another leave without pay, the second leave will be treated as a new leave. If there is less than one calendar month of full-time employment between leaves without pay, the leaves will be treated as one, regardless of the types of leave. The length of time that coverage may be continued will depend on the current type of leave.

1VAC55-20-390. Termination of coverage.

A. Coverage ends at the end of the month in which an employee terminates the employment relationship, otherwise loses group eligibility, or on the last day of the month for which premiums are paid.

B. Coverage ends on the date of a participant's death. Coverage for family members of state employees continues until the end of the month following the month in which the participant died.

1. A surviving state beneficiary may enroll in the state retiree group if:

a. The state dependent is eligible for an annuity under the Virginia Retirement System (VRS) death-in-service provision;

b. The employee had submitted a disability retirement application naming the dependent under the survivor option before his death and the employee died prior to achieving the retirement date; or

c. The death was job related.

To continue coverage, the family member must apply within 60 days of the date the coverage would otherwise end due to the death.

2. Survivors of deceased state employees who are not eligible for an annuity from VRS can nonetheless be covered under the State Health Benefits Program if they had coverage at the time the employee died. To continue coverage, the state family member must apply within 60 days of the employee's death.

C. In the event that an employee on leave without pay notifies the employer that he is terminating employment, coverage ends on the last day of the month in which the leave without pay ceases.

1VAC55-20-400. Termination of employment.

A. Coverage continues to the end of the month in which an employee terminates. Each terminating employee may elect continuation of coverage pursuant to Internal Revenue Code section 4980B and accompanying regulations.

1VAC55-20-410. Suspension and reinstatement of state employees.

A. General.

1. Coverage generally continues with the state contribution through the end of the month in which the suspension began. However, if the suspension was effective on or before the first work day of the month, there will be no coverage for that month unless the employee is reinstated in time to work half of the work days in the month. For example, if a suspension is effective on April 19, the employee will have coverage with the state contribution through the end of April. If the suspension is effective April 1, the employee must pay the entire cost of coverage for the month of April. By the same token, if the suspension is effective April 2 and the employee's first workday in April is April 3, the employee will not have the state contribution in April.

2. If the employee is suspended pending court action or pending an official investigation, the suspension may go beyond one pay period. In these cases, coverage will continue with the state contribution to the end of the month in which the suspension began. If the employee is reinstated in time to work half of the workdays of the month following the month in which the suspension began, there would be no break in coverage. Suspension beyond that period should be handled in the same way as a leave without pay with no employer contribution. The employee may waive coverage or remain in the group by paying the full monthly contribution to the employer in advance. Group coverage may continue until a court decision is issued or the official investigation is completed, or up to a period of 12 months, whichever is less.

3. If the employee is reinstated with back benefits, the employer should refund the employee the amount of the employer contribution during the period the employee paid the full premium. Appropriate contributions must be made to cover the retroactive period. Alternatively, the family membership may begin the first full month of reinstatement if the employee applies within 31 days of reinstatement. Previous coverage elections, including dual and family memberships, will be reinstated retroactively.

B. Termination and grievance reinstatement.

1. Employees who are terminated and file a grievance shall be treated as terminated employees and may elect extended coverage or nongroup coverage. In the event such an employee is reinstated with back pay, previous health and flexible spending account elections will be reinstated retroactively. Appropriate contributions must be made to cover the period.

2. If the employee is reinstated without full back pay, no retroactive coverage is available.

1VAC55-20-430. Coordination of benefits.

A. New employees will receive and be required to respond to a coordination of benefits (COB) inquiry letter following enrollment in the health plan. Employees should notify the plan administrator if coverage changes during employment for them or a covered dependent. If a plan participant is eligible for coverage under two or more plans, the plans involved will share the responsibility for the participant's benefits according to these rules.

1. If the other coverage does not have COB rules substantially similar to the participant's health plan's rules, the other coverage will be primary.

2. If a covered person is enrolled as the employee under one coverage and as a dependent under another, generally the one that covers him as the employee will be primary. The plan that covers a person as an active employee, that is an employee who is neither laid off nor retired, or as a dependent of an active employee is the primary plan. The plan covering that same person as a retired or laid-off employee or as a dependent of a retired or laid-off employee is the secondary plan.

3. If a covered person is the employee under both coverages, generally the one that covers him for the longer period of time will be primary.

4. If the dependent is covered as a dependent on his parent's or parents' plan and is also covered as a dependent on his spouse's plan, the spouse's plan is primary.

5. If the covered person is enrolled as a dependent child under both coverages (for example, when both parents cover their child), typically the coverage of the parent whose birthday falls earliest in the calendar year will be primary.

6. Special rules apply when a covered person is enrolled as a dependent child under two coverages and the child's parents are living apart. Generally, the coverage of the parent or step-parent with custody will be primary. However, if there is a court order that requires one parent to provide health care for the child, that parent's coverage will be primary. If there is a court order that states the parents share joint custody without designating that one parent is responsible for medical expenses, the parent whose birthday falls earliest in the plan year will be primary.

7. If a covered active employee or employee's dependent is also covered by Medicare, the coverage provided by the employer is primary, unless Medicare eligibility is due to end stage renal disease and the coordination period has been exhausted.

8. If a covered retiree, survivor, or long-term disability participant, or a covered dependent of any of these, is eligible for Medicare, the Medicare-eligible member is not eligible for active employee coverage under the member's health plan, except during an end stage renal disease coordination period.

B. When the participant's health plan is the primary coverage, it pays first. When the participant's health plan is the secondary coverage, it pays second as follows:

1. The plan administrator calculates the amount the participant's health plan would have paid if it had been primary coverage, then coordinates this amount with the primary plan's payment. The participant's health plan's payment in combination with the other plan's payment will never exceed the amount the participant's health plan would have paid if it had been the participant's primary coverage.

2. Some plans provide services rather than making a payment (i.e., a group model HMO). When such a plan is the primary coverage, the participant's health plan will assign a reasonable cash value for the services and that will be considered the plan's primary payment. The participant's health plan will then coordinate with the primary plan based on that value.

3. In no event will the participant's health plan pay more in benefits as secondary coverage than it would have paid as primary coverage.

C. If the administrator provided primary coverage and discovers later that it should have provided secondary coverage, the administrator has the right to recover the excess payment from the employee or any other person or organization. If excess benefit payments are made on behalf of the employee, the employee must cooperate with the administrator in exercising its right of recovery.

D. Employees are obligated to supply the plan administrator all information needed to administer this coordination of benefits provision. This must be done before an employee is entitled to receive benefits under this plan. Further, the employees must agree that the administrator has the right to obtain or release information about covered services or benefits received. This right will be used only when working with another person or organization to settle payments for coordinated services. The employee's prior consent is not required.
