When can a school board member enroll in the State’s health insurance plan?

A school board member may enroll within 31 days of being sworn into office, or during the State’s fall Annual Enrollment period. Changes may also be made if a member has a special qualifying event, as outlined on page 3 of the enrollment application https://www.tn.gov/content/dam/tn/finance/fa-benefits/documents/1043_2018.pdf

A school board member’s eligibility date is the date he or she is sworn in or no later than the end of the following month. Coverage starts on the first day of the month after their eligibility date.
