Supplement Program

APPLICATION PERIOD | APRIL 22 - MAY 22, 2014

The FY 2014-15 Supplement Program Application Period will open April 22, 2014 and close on Thursday May 22, 2014 at 11:59 p.m. MDT. To be eligible for the program, employees must apply, even if they have applied in past years.  The FY 2014-15 plan year runs from July 1, 2014 to June 30, 2015. 

The medical premium supplement is a program that can assist qualified low-income state employees with dependent children with the cost of medical premiums. Employees and their children must either enroll in one of the state's medical insurance options as part of open enrollment. Approved applicants not enrolled in a State medical option will be required to enroll at a later date.   

As the program is need-based, employees who apply must submit documentation 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, verification must also be provided for the income of other household members over the age of 16.  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.
