If You Take a Leave of Absence
What happens to my benefits if I take a leave of absence?
Plan participants who go on employer-approved leave with pay (such as a sabbatical) or without pay are covered for up to 24 months for the following supplemental benefits:
- Prescription Drugs
- Hearing Aid
If you are enrolled in the Extended Medical benefit before your leave of absence begins, it will continue only if your basic GHI-CBP coverage continues. If CUNY does not provide basic health coverage for any portion of the 24-month period, you must get coverage via COBRA or other direct payment in order to qualify. Benefits are available to participants during a leave of absence to the same extent as they were prior to a leave. Benefits continue to apply to eligible dependents.
