Associate Faculty Medical Insurance

The medical enrollment period for the Associate Faculty Medical Benefits Program (AMBP) happens twice per year in September and March.

You must re-confirm your enrollment during every enrollment period by submitting the Declaration of Eligibility form to Human Resources.

The current enrollment period is happening now (March 1 to March 31, 2022) and the medical insurance starts 4/1/22 and lasts until 9/30/22. If you resign your position or retire, then your medical insurance ends at the end of the month that you last work. All forms and required documents are due to Human Resources by 5 p.m. on March 31, 2022.

The forms on this page are all fillable and signable electronically. Once you've opened the form, please click "Download" and "Save" to access the signable version.

 

Eligibility requirements for those CONTINUING their medical insurance in Spring 2022:

Due to the covid side letter dated 10/28/21, Associate Faculty members who are currently participating in the Associate Faculty Medical Benefits Program (AMBP) will maintain eligibility for the program even if the faculty member's load drops below the 40% threshold required by the state-funded program. In order to continue to be eligible to receive medical insurance, associate faculty members must have an assignment in the District or be on an approved leave during the Spring 2022 enrollment period.
