When spouses are both employed by the state, they must enroll under the same family coverage. Employees cannot be covered as both an employee and a dependent under the State’s health and dental insurance plans.
Employees have four coverage choices under the health plans:
- Each spouse may enroll separately in single coverage.
- One spouse may elect single coverage and the other spouse may enroll themselves and dependent(s) in family coverage. The spouse selecting single coverage may not be listed as a dependent on the family plan.
- One spouse may elect to waive coverage and the other spouse may enroll both spouses and dependent(s) in family coverage.
- Both spouses may elect family coverage for themselves and their dependent(s) under double-spouse family coverage with one spouse being the contract holder and one being the contributing spouse.
