Skidmore Employee Benefits Summary

Health Care

What are my choices of health care plans?

You may cover your spouse or qualified domestic partner in your health care plan. You may also cover dependent children up to age 26. Full benefit details can be found on the yearly benefits information page.

What is the cost of a health care plan to employees?

The cost varies based on the level of coverage (individual, dual, employee plus child(ren) or family), the plan chosen, and your annual base salary. Your employee contribution will be deducted from your paycheck, prorated over the entire calendar year (for continuing employees) or for the remainder of the calendar year (for new employees) before state, federal and FICA taxes are calculated. An Employee Health Care Cost Sharing sheet can be found on the yearly benefits information page.

The College will contribute the remaining cost of the annual health care premium on your behalf. For participants in approved shared appointments, the College also contributes a prorated portion of the annual premium (more information can be found in the policy on Shared Appointments).

With the exception of faculty sabbaticals, employee cost-sharing will be adjusted for salary changes each January 1.

What are the highlights of each health care plan?

A health comparison summary can be found on the yearly benefits information page.
