Who is eligible for active employee health benefits?

FAQs Cagegory: . . */ ?>

Active employees include those who are employed by the State or County who will be working for more than three months in a position that requires more than 50% full-time equivalent.  As an active employee you are eligible to enroll:

  • Yourself
  • Your spouse or domestic partner
  • Your children under age 26 for medical and prescription drug coverage.  This includes children by birth, marriage, adoption or placement for adoption.  For dental and vision coverage, dependent children under age 19, and from age 19 through age 23 if they are unmarried and a full-time student.  For children covered under legal guardianship, their coverage will terminate at 18.
  • Your child, regardless of age, who are incapable of self-support because of a mental or physical impairment that existed prior to the child reaching age 19.

Part-time and temporary employees not eligible for the EUTF health plans should contact their departmental human resources or personnel office for more information.
