Important Summer Insurance Information
During the summer months, hourly employees may continue benefit coverage by paying their premium portion either by working enough hours through the summer to cover premium costs or by paying through the summer coupon program. Hourly employees also have the option to waive (drop) their insurance coverage July & August. See attached Summer Coupon Options for step by step instructions for each situation.
All hourly employees’ benefits will be terminated as of June 30, 2013 unless payments are received through coupons or by payroll deductions if the employee informs the Benefits Dept. that they will be receiving sufficient funds while working during the summer (see attached Selection form). Payments (personal checks or Money Orders) MUST be received or postmarked no later than the 6th of the month for that month’s premium coverage. NO LATE PAYMENTS WILL BE ACCEPTED. Since the coupons are mailed to your home, please ensure that your home address is current by updating your information on Employee Space.
If you are an hourly employee and working through the summer or wish to waive insurance July and August, you must indicate your intentions by completing the attached Benefit Summer Insurance Program Selection Form and fax it to 720-423-3924 or return it to Denver Public Schools, Employee Benefit Department, 900 Grant Street, Room 502, Denver, CO 80203 by June 15, 2013. Note: due to timing issues, you may receive Summer Coupons even if you choose to waive benefits or work through the summer. Please disregard them if the coupons do not apply to your situation.
If your District Contribution is enough to cover your premium costs, no action needs to be taken. Your coverage will NOT be dropped and you will NOT receive coupons.
