Kean University employees participate in the State Health Benefits Program (SHBP) through the Division of Pensions and Benefits of the State of New Jersey.

Full-time employees, spouses, civil-union partners, certain same-sex domestic partners and dependent children are eligible for health insurance coverage.

Employees and their eligible dependents may be covered after 60 days of continuous employment. Full-time faculty members whose appointments start on September 1 may be covered as of the beginning of the academic year.  Faculty members that begin employment on other dates are eligible for health benefits following a 60 day waiting period.

The cost of the plans is determined according to the employee's base salary and level of coverage selected. For more details, please review the following documents that contain medical plan descriptions, costs and comparison charts.

NEW EMPLOYEES

All newly hired employees are required to submit enrollment forms to the Benefits Unit at the Kean University Office of Human Resources within 30 days of their date of hire and indicate whether they wish to enroll in health benefits or waive coverage.

MAKING CHANGES TO YOUR HEALTH BENEFITS

The State Health Benefits Program holds its annual open enrollment each fall (usually in October). During open enrollment, employees may change plans or add dependents to their coverage. Contact the Office of Human Resources for the specific dates of open enrollment.

Changes in health coverage due to life events, such as marriage, birth of a child, divorce, may be made within 60 days of the event date. Employees must advise the Office of Human Resources immediately of any change in personal status which might affect the employee's benefits coverage. You may drop your coverage at any time.
