Health Benefits Waiver Credit for 2012

Monday, Oct. 31, 2011

Greetings SCU Community,

As mentioned in the ʹAnnouncing Open Enrollmentʹ email sent on Wednesday, October 26, 2011 as of January 1, 2012, employees who have other medical coverage available and choose not to enroll in the SCU medical plans will be able to elect to receive a healthcare waiver credit of $150 per month ($75 per pay period). All employees who are either currently waived for 2011 and those who choose to waive out of medical coverage for 2012 must complete a Health Care Waiver Form and provide proof of other insurance* in order to receive the credit. All forms must be received by the Department of Human Resources by November 30th 2011. If you need additional time in providing the proof of other coverage due to your spouse or registered domestic partnersʹ open enrollment period, please let me know.

Please contact the Department of Human Resources at x4392 or x1860 if you have any other questions in regards to the waiver credit or Open Enrollment in general.

The waiver form may found on SCU’s Open Enrollment website at

*Proof of other insurance can be a copy of your insurance card, a letter from your spouse or registered domestic partnersʹ human resources department or a copy of your 2012 enrollment form for that other insurance.
