WRITTEN SUMMARY: Click HERE of benefits
NEW INTERNATIONAL GE’S will WAIVE out of the UO’s international student insurance at the SAME time you ENROLL into the GTFF plan.
PAYROLL DEDUCTION FORM: when you sign up you will be directed to the payroll deduction form to sign up to have your share of the premiums taken from your paychecks automatically! Per our contract, GE’s pay 5% of the cost any term you have a GE. Summer you can keep the coverage without a GE , but pay 20%.
The grand total of premiums owed will be taken out over nine paychecks in small, equal, installments. You do NOT pay the grand total upfront!
Rates can be found here.
INSURANCE CARDS WILL BE MAILED: After you have filled out the application and submitted payroll deduction (and waiver if international), we will process your application and the carriers will mail your cards. We have to verify your employment and send applications to carriers, IT MAY TAKE A COUPLE OF WEEKS. Regardless, your coverage, when activated, WILL BE EFFECTIVE FROM SEPT. 16TH FORWARDS. i.e., if you sign up on Sept. 23 and your application is not processed until Oct. 4th, your coverage will be retro-active to Sept. 16th and any medical/dental/vision/pharmacy expense you have to pay for out of pocket will be reimbursable.
When negotiating our contract with the University, the GTFF makes it a priority to insure that GEs have quality health insurance that is fully subsidized while working for the university (the only exception is the summer term, see FAQs).
The GTFF health insurance provider is Regence Blue Cross Blue Shield for medical, pharmacy, and vision. Pacific Source for dental (have have two dental plans to choose from).
