Q:

When does health insurance coverage begin for employees hired into positions eligible for State insurance benefits?



A:

If the employee begins active employment on the first day of the month, coverage begins on that day (on the 1st of the month).

If the employee begins active employment on the first working day of the month, but not on the first day of the month, then the employee may choose when coverage begins: The first day of that month or the first day of the following month.

If the employee begins active employment after the first working day of the month, coverage will begin the first day of the following month.
