What You Should Know about the Adjunct Health Insurance Plan

  • Qualifying adjuncts will be offered the same health care insurance options for individual coverage offered to full-time CUNY employees through the NYC Office of Labor Relations Employee Health Benefits Program.
  • Adjunct Health Insurance is individual-only, and family coverage is available for additional payment. There is no payroll deductions for your new health benefits coverage. Two of the options for individual-only coverage on the City program – HIP-HMO and GHI-CBP/Blue Cross – require no premium payment. Other options offered on the City plan require premium costs. Premium remittance for those who elect a family ”buy-up” and/or a more expensive insurance option and/or a rider will be collected monthly via electronic withdrawals from your designated bank account. Please refer to the rate sheet on the CUNY website.
  • The PSC-CUNY Welfare Fund administers prescription drug benefit and other benefits determined by the Fund Trustees.
