Affordable Care Act
When an enrollee's authorized hours total sixty (60) or more each pay period, the enrollee is eligible for the NOWCC SEE Program Group Health Insurance Plan. There is no cost to the enrollee for this coverage. The NOWCC benefits administrator will provide information about the plan's options.
After enrolling, Aetna will send you an information packet containing your ID card.
Enrollees authorized to work a total of thirty-five (35) hours per payperiod are eligible to participate in the Dental Care Plan even if not currently enrolled in the Health Care Plan. This benefit, available at a low cost through payroll deduction, offers you and your family the opportunity to have affordable dental care. There are no charges for most preventative services.
You may enroll in the dental plan during the open enrollment period once a year. Premiums are paid one month in advance and are deducted from the first paycheck of each month.
Your NOWCC Field Office can provide you with information about the Dental Care Plan.
The Consolidated Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act (COBRA) provides you and your dependent(s) the right to continue group health and dental care benefits when you become ineligible (i.e., separation or hours reduced to less than 60 per pay period) for coverage under the NOWCC SEE Program's group health and dental plans.
The NOWCC benefits administrator will send you a packet containing information on how to elect continuation of coverage and the costs involved. You should receive this within fourteen (14) days after your date of ineligibility. If you do not, notify your NOWCC Field Office.
