Healthcare Coverage

When GAU first formed, GA subsidies were distributed through a lottery, and awarded to a mere 400 employees at random. The subsidy also came nowhere near sufficient coverage, considering the premiums. We have successfully bargained for a subsidy as a guaranteed benefit to any GA who purchases the student health insurance plan.

Health Insurance 

For the 2018-2019 academic year, the University will pay a portion of the student health insurance premium for individual coverage of those employees on at least a 0.25 FTE appointment for the fall and spring semesters who are not enrolled in any other state or University health insurance program and who elect coverage under the Student Health Insurance Plan.

 

 Payroll deduction is the method for employees to pay for their portion of the health insurance premium.

Dental and Vision Coverage

In 2019, GAU secured vision and dental insurance options for Graduate Assistants. For under $50 a month, GAs can get two free teeth cleanings, a routine eye exam, and other basic care covered.
