PCC offers four medical plans to choose from including 3 preferred provider organization (PPO) plans, and a health maintenance organization (HMO). All plans include prescription drug coverage. There is no pre-existing condition waiting period for new employees or eligible dependents, including domestic partners, with exception of some transplant services. Employees choosing to opt out of medical, vision and dental coverage receive up to $200 cash back per month based on full-time equivalence (Part-time Faculty are not eligible for the opt out incentive; Prorated for other part-time employees).
New employees who are benefits eligible must enroll in their choice of medical plan on the first of the month following an initial 30-day waiting period, except for part-time faculty. Part-time faculty must meet the minimum qualifications for eligibility, then benefits will be effective October 1st each year. If the benefits eligible employee does not make a benefits election, the PCC default plan (ODS plan 8) will be assigned. Changes to medical insurance elections can be made during the fall open enrollment period of each year. These changes become effective on October 1st of each year. Certain “qualified status changes” permit enrollment in medical plans mid-year. Consult with a benefits specialist for details.
The four medical plans available to PCC employees with benefits and their families are listed and compared on these medical and prescription comparison charts.
