April 23 to May 24, 2013- Supplement Application Period for the FY 2013-14 Supplement Program. To be eligible for the program, employees must apply, even if they have applied in past years. The FY 2013-14 plan year runs from July 1, 2013 to June 30, 2014.
The supplement for medical insurance is a program for qualified low-income state employees with dependent children.
As the program is need-based, employees who apply must submit documenation to verify dependents (spouse / same-gender domestic partners / children) and income (a copy of the previous year's federal tax return). Since the income eligibility requirements are based on the entire household, verication must also be provided for other household members and their income.
Because the program must be funded each year by the legislature, there is no guarantee the program will continue from year to year. In addition, the amount of money for the program appropriated by the legislature varies from year to year.
Who is eligible for the Supplement?
The supplement is for low-income employees with dependent children. Employees and their children must either enroll in one of the state's medical insurance options as part of open enrollment, or be willing to enroll in one of the state options. Approved applicants not enrolled in a State medical option will be required to enroll at a later date. For specifics on eligibility, please visit the Minimum Qualifications section.
Employees with questions about the program should contact their agency benefits or human resources (HR) offices.
