Health Coverage for Part-Time Employees and Adjuncts
Part-time employees of Kean University, including adjuncts, who are currently enrolled in a state administered retirement plan, are eligible to enroll in the Part-Time State Health Benefits Program for medical and prescription drug coverage. Eligible employees who wish to enroll in a prescription drug option must also enroll in a medical plan. Eligible employees who enroll will pay the full share of the premium costs, which will be billed directly to the employee on a monthly basis by the Division of Pensions and Benefits.
Generally, coverage may begin after 60 days of continuous employment. However, adjuncts whose appointments/contracts start on September 1st may enroll in coverage as of their September 1st start date. Part-time employees and Adjuncts that begin employment on any other dates are eligible for part-time health benefits following a 60 day waiting period.
