If you were previously insured under the District’s Benefits Program and terminated service and then return to work within the Reinstatement Period, your coverage may be reinstated from your date of recall or rehire.

If you are recalled or rehired by the District the following steps will be taken:

  • The normal waiting period is waived provided coverage is requested within 31 days of the date of rehire
  • If coverage is requested later than 31 days from the date of rehire or you did not return to work within the reinstatement period, you will be treated as a New Applicant for life, accident and disability benefits (if applicable) and satisfy the waiting period before being re-enroled. Extended health and dental benefits can be reinstated with no waiting period if coverage is requested before 4 months from the date of rehire.
  • There may be differences in the District’s policy based on the previous termination of the Employee (ie. layoff, voluntary termination, etc.)
  • This reinstatement policy does not apply if you have converted the group policy to an individual policy at time of termination of employment
  • Contact your Benefits Administrator for specific time limitations.
