Health Benefits

UNE offers medical insurance to address the health care needs of our full-time and half-time faculty and staff. There are two levels of in-network health insurance coverage and one in- and out-of-network plan to choose among. Each of the three levels of coverage is available in a variety of family structures to provide the right level of coverage for the best cost.


  • Full-time or half-time faculty or staff (self)
  • Spouse or Domestic Partner
  • Dependent Children (and those of a Domestic Partner) until the end of the month they turn 26 years of age
  • Participation in health coverage may begin the first of the month after your hire or qualifying event. If your hire or event occurs on the first of the month, then benefits begin on the date of hire or qualifying event.
  • Please review the Summary Plan Descriptions for more eligibility details and consult with Human Resources for specific situations.
