Health Insurance

Below is a list of various health insurances provided to Southeastern Louisiana University Employees. New employees must enroll in a group benefit plan within the first 30 days of employment. If this deadline is missed the employee may still enroll as a late applicant, but they must provide proof of insurability, which is subject to approval by the insurance plan selected. Also, a pre-existing condition clause may be imposed on the applicant for a period of 1 year from the date of coverage. The portability law may be applicable in some cases for late applicants who had other health insurance coverage within 60 days prior to the effective date of coverage with the Southeastern health plan. If an employee declines to enroll in health insurance a waiver of coverage is created after the first 30 days of employment.

IMPORTANT: A new enrollment form must be completed for each new dependent within 30 days after acquiring the new dependent (birth, adoption, marriage, etc.). Failure to comply with this rule will subject your dependent to the pre-existing condition clause even if adding the new dependent does not result in a change in classification of coverage of the premium.

Employees who have 10 or more work days of leave without pay in a calendar month will be responsible for paying the employee and the employer portions of their health insurance premiums.

NOTIFICATION OF CHANGE ERROR: It is the employee's responsibility to notify the program of any change or error in classification of coverage or any other error affecting his contribution amount. Any failure later determined will be corrected on the first of the following month. All refunds shall be limited to six months from the date notice is received by State Employees Group Benefits.
