Starting in September 2011, the University of Wyoming is providing a new benefit to employees with qualifying domestic partners and legal dependents who are not eligible for coverage through another employer-paid health insurance plan. The benefit provides an allowance to assist in paying for health insurance for partners and dependents. The allowance is equivalent in dollar amount to the state’s contributions to the Wyoming employees’ group insurance plan for spouses and dependents. The benefit is available to qualifying opposite- and same-sex domestic partners.
The first open enrollment period is August 15 through September 15, 2011, with the first benefit distributed in the September 30 paycheck. Participating employees must apply for the benefit through the Human Resources Department. An affidavit, available from the HR Department, provides specific criteria for eligibility.
