MEMORANDA OF UNDERSTANDING
IV. Summer Benefits
The University will provide special handling of any employee who is participating in health or dental insurance plans during Term II and has been re-employed for the following Term I with a one quarter or greater employment fraction but whose confirmation of Term I employment was not delivered to the Benefits Office by April 10. Employees so affected should contact the Graduate Student Assistantship Program Office which will arrange for continued enrollment. If it is too late for such enrollment for those who continue health and dental insurance coverage using COBRA or who pay for other coverage, the University will reimburse the employee for any premiums actually paid up to the amount the University would have paid in premiums for the continuation of regular University coverage provided a premium receipt is submitted to the GSA Program Office. For those who decide to pay for health and dental expenses directly, the University also will reimburse the employee up to the amount the University would have paid in premiums for the continuation of regular University coverage, but not to exceed actual expenses provided an original bill is submitted.
