Spousal Carve-out
HCS’s Medical Plan includes a provision that benefit eligible employees may only cover a spouse as a dependent if the spouse does not have access to medical coverage through their employer. If your Spouse has a high deductible health plan with a deductible of $1,400 or higher through their employer, you can add them to your plan for a $100 monthly surcharge. Employees will be required to complete a Spousal Coverage Affidavit at enrollment.
