Insured State Employees and Insured State Retirees may buy out their Commission health coverage during Annual Enrollment or at a time designated by the Commission in the fall if they have other non-state health insurance coverage that is comparable to Commission health coverage and is verified by documentation acceptable to the Commission and must maintain Basic Life Insurance. Eligible Employees and Retirees receive 25% of the full-cost monthly premium in lieu of health insurance benefits for a maximum of one 12-month period starting either July 1 or January 1. Full cost monthly premium is determined based on the Employee's last Commission health plan and coverage type (individual vs. family), and is subject to applicable taxes.
