How do I continue my health, dental, vision, and life insurances while on a Parental Leave if I am covered under FMLA?
If you substitute paid leave credits for unpaid FMLA, your health, dental, vision, and dependent life insurance premiums will continue to be deducted from your paycheck while you remain on payroll.
If you exhaust or do not use leave credits while covered under FMLA, your health, dental, and vision insurances will continue until your FMLA ends.
Once you are no longer covered under FMLA, the Employee Benefits Division (EBD) will mail you a (CS-1820) Application to Continue Insurances that includes the plans (health, dental, vision, and life) that are eligible for continuation. You must select the insurance plans you wish to continue and return the application to EBD.
EBD will mail you an invoice. You will be responsible for making a direct payment for coverage to continue.
If you have questions on the Application to Continue Insurances form (CS-1820), contact EBD at 1-800-505-5011.
