Current through Register Vol. 55, No. 48, December 18, 2023
(a) Cessation of coverage in the Part-time Employees Group shall be deemed to occur on the last day of eligibility for the coverage period for which charges have been paid.
(b) If a member of the Part-time Employees Group does not remit payment by the end of the month in which payment is due and owing, the SHBP shall notify the member of the overdue amount plus the current amount due on the next billing statement; such notice shall also advise the member that the right to continue coverage will be terminated if payment in full is not remitted within 30 days. If no payment is made by the due date, the SHBP shall terminate the coverage effective on the last day of the month for which premiums were paid.
(c) Termination for nonpayment of premiums is not a COBRA event. An active employee terminated for nonpayment of premiums would not be able to re-enroll in the Part-time Employees Group until the next regular open enrollment.
