Which employing agency is responsible to pay the employer contribution for eligible employees changing agency employment or for faculty employed by more than one institution of higher education?

Employing agencies responsible for paying the employer contribution:
(1) For eligible employees changing agencies: When an eligible employee's employment relationship terminates with an employing agency at any time during the month for which a premium contribution is due and that employee transfers to another agency, the losing agency is responsible for the employer contribution for that employee for that month. The receiving agency is liable for any employer contribution for the eligible employee beginning the first day of the month following the transfer.
(2) For eligible faculty employed by more than one institution of higher education:
(a) When a faculty is eligible for the employer contribution during an anticipated work period (quarter, semester or instructional year), under WAC 182-12-131(3), one institution will pay the entire cost of the employer contribution if the employee is eligible by virtue of employment at that single institution. Otherwise:
(i) Each institution contributes based on its percentage of the employee's total work at all institutions during the anticipated work period.
(ii) The institution with the greatest percentage coordinates with the other institutions and is responsible for sending the total premium payment to the health care authority (HCA).
(b) When a faculty is eligible for the employer contribution during the summer or off-quarter/semester, under WAC 182-12-131 (3)(c), one institution will pay the entire cost of the employer contribution if the employee is eligible by virtue of employment at that single institution. Otherwise:
(i) Each institution contributes based on its percentage of the employee's total work at all institutions throughout the instructional year or equivalent nine-month period.
(ii) The institution with the greatest percentage coordinates with the other institutions and is responsible for sending the total premium payment to HCA.
(c) When a faculty is eligible through two-year averaging under WAC 182-12-131 (3)(d) for the employer contribution, one institution will pay the entire cost of the employer contribution if the employee is eligible by virtue of employment at that single institution. Otherwise:
(i) Each institution contributes to coverage based on its percentage of the employee's total work at all institutions throughout the preceding two academic years. This division of the employer contribution begins the summer quarter or semester following the second academic year and continues through that academic year or until eligibility under two-year averaging ceases.
Note:
"Academic year" means summer, fall, winter, and spring quarters or summer, fall, and spring semesters, in that order.
(ii) The institution with the greatest percentage coordinates with the other institutions and is responsible for sending the total premium payment to HCA.
