You can select from three coverage levels: individual, employee + one or family for either your medical and/or dental plans.

Domestic partners and the partner’s natural or legally adopted children can be enrolled in the medical and/or dental plans once the “Statement of Domestic Partnership” is completed and approved. All contributions for additional medical and dental coverage for a domestic partner and the partner’s dependent children will be deducted on an after-tax basis. Click “Domestic Partner” for further information.

  • You can add or drop dependents, to your coverage whenever you have a qualifying change in your family status. Click “Changes in Family Status” for further information.
  • You can contribute to a Health Care Flexible Spending Account to pay for medical and dental expenses that are not reimbursable by your plan. See “Flexible Spending Accounts” in this publication for more information.
  • If your spouse or domestic partner has medical or dental coverage under his or her employer's plan, you should consider that coverage as you decide on your medical and/or dental coverage through Pace University.
  • For the medical or dental plan, dependent children are covered to age 19.  For medical coverage only, students who are covered under the employee’s plan are covered until the end of the calendar year in which they lose their student status up to the age of 25.  For dental, coverage will continue for dependent children with full time student status at a higher education institution until the end of the month in which they turn age 23.
  • If you are covering a dependent child who attends college out of the network area, he or she will need to choose a primary care physician near your place of residence for routine care. If a medical emergency occurs at college, he or she will still receive network benefits.
