Employee Health Benefits
Miami Dade College offers its employees the option of membership in the Aetna Health Reimbursement Arrangement (HRA) or Aetna Choice POS (Open Access) plan. Individual Employee coverage under the HRA is fully paid for by the College. In 2016, employees choosing the POS plan will pay $174.08 per check toward their individual employee coverage. Those who wish to enroll their families must pay the cost of dependent coverage. To speak to an Aetna representative regarding HRA or POS coverage, you may call this toll free number: 800.323.9930.
Dependents include spouse or domestic partner; and children up to the age of 26 or age 30 if eligibility requirements are met.
Married couples who are both employed by the College and who have dependents, may elect to have individual coverage paid for by the College and pay only the difference between the cost to the College for the couple and the cost for family coverage. It is the responsibility of the employee to notify Human Resources of his/her eligibility for this reduced premium. Full details may be obtained by contacting the Benefits Office at 305.237.2010.

The Benefits Department must be notified within thirty (30) days of all qualified family status change. Examples of a qualified family status change include:
