If you plan to enroll a spouse in your health coverage you must complete an Employer Information Form and Attestation Form within 60 days. 

For Employees Hired PRIOR to July 1, 2013

Spouses added to coverage after July 1, 2001 who are eligible for fully-paid employer coverage (e.g., no employee contribution for coverage) through their employer must be enrolled in their employer’s coverage and State System health coverage will provide benefits as secondary payer only.

For Employee Hired ON OR AFTER July 1, 2013

If an employee enrolls a spouse in the State System health plan and that person is eligible for coverage under their own employer’s plan, the spouse shall be required to enroll in their own employer’s plan for their primary coverage as a condition for eligibility for secondary coverage under the State System health plan regardless of the cost to the spouse for that coverage.
