Connecticut Partnership Plan

Plan Introduction

The Connecticut Partnership Plan offers comprehensive medical and dental benefits similar to those offered to employees in many Connecticut municipalities. To learn more about the version of the Connecticut Partnership plan available to you, review the menu items on the left. Please also review the required COBRA notification (on the left) and information on the Affordable Care Act.

Once you have reviewed the plan information and required notifications, it is time to make a designation of whether or not you will enroll in the Connecticut Partnership Plan. Should you choose to waive coverage, keep in mind that all full-time students are required by the University to maintain health insurance coverage.

Whether you choose to enroll in the plan or waive coverage, the deadline to submit your election form is 31 days from your hire date.

About Enrolling Eligible Dependents

If you plan to elect coverage for your eligible dependents, you will need to include electronic (scanned) documentation of each dependent’s eligibility status at the time of enrollment. Also, for dependents who have social security numbers, you will need to include their social security numbers on their election form.

Qualified dependents generally include:

  • Your legally married spouse or civil union partner.
  • Your children, including stepchildren and adopted children, up to age 26 for medical and age 19 for dental (disabled children may be covered beyond age 26).
  • Children for whom you are legal guardian up to age 18, unless proof of continued dependency is provided (allowing coverage up to age 26 for medical and 19 for dental).
