INFORMATIONAL CIRCULAR NO. 02-P-016 (Update to 01-p-047  )  
DATE:  October 30, 2001
SUBJECT: FY 2002 Group Health Insurance Payroll Contribution Rates
EFFECTIVE DATE:   Plan Year 2002

APPROVAL: Approved by Dale Brunton
SUMMARY: GHI semi-monthly employer contribution rates for Fiscal Year 2002

The attached schedule is a listing of the Group Health Insurance semi-monthly employer contribution rates for Fiscal Year 2002 which become effective with the on-cycle payroll period beginning December 9, 2001 and ending December 22, 2001 paid January 4, 2002.

For plan year 2002, the GHI coverage periods are changing from biweekly to monthly. Deductions for GHI for plan year 2002 will be made on a semi-monthly rather than a biweekly basis; deductions will be taken on the first and second paycheck of each month for that month's coverage. For example, GHI deductions taken on the January 4, 2002 and January 18, 2002 paychecks will be premium deductions for the coverage period January 1 through January 31, 2002. Months with three paydates will not have a GHI deduction taken on the third paycheck. Annual employer contribution rates remain the same; however, the contribution amounts per payroll period are higher due to the implementation of 24 deductions annually (rather than 26) beginning in plan year 2002.

The Division of Accounts and Reports, Payroll Systems Team will make the necessary changes to the SHARP payroll system to effect these changes for all employees for whom SHARP calculates pay. Regents' institutions are responsible for ensuring that the correct contribution rates are used when calculating payroll for employees of their agencies.
