MEDICAL AND DENTAL INSURANCE
is available to providers who meet the eligibility requirements (up to available funding). Currently insurance enrollment is full. Providers may enroll on a waitlist. Waitlist applications are date stamped when they arrive, and waitlist numbers assigned in the order in which the waitlist form arrives in our office. Insurance enrollment is taken from the waitlist numbers.
Enrollment in the benefits program requires that you meet and comply with ongoing eligibility, timesheet, and enrollment deadlines, and pay the monthly share of insurance premiums. Enrollment is not automatic.
