We’re proud to say that Astyra offers benefits for eligible employees and dependents!
Whether you want medical, dental, vision or supplemental we provide the option to enroll and pay through an automatic weekly payroll deduction.
Upon hire, employees are notified of their class determination which decides whether these benefits are available on the first of the month following 30 days of employment or on the first of the month after 60 days of employment. However, regardless of an employee’s classification, our group health plans renew annually on September 1. During the 30-day open enrollment period in August, employees can choose to end their coverage, make changes to their current coverage or enroll for the first time in coverage.
Other than those instances, employees are only eligible to make changes to their coverage if family status changes occur such as:
- Loss or gain of coverage through spouse
- Loss of eligibility of a covered dependent
- Death of a covered spouse or child
- Birth of adoption of a child
- Marriage, divorce or legal separation
- Switch from part-time employment to full-time employment
Please note, these changes must be notified to the Human Resources department and made within 30 days of the occurrence.
Leaving Astyra? No worry, we continue to offer insurance for up to 18 months after an employee’s position ends, if desired. Through the Consolidated Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act (COBRA), we are able to continue providing insurance at the employees expense.
