What options are available if a school employee is approved for the federal Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) or the paid family and medical leave program?

(1) A school employee on approved leave under the federal Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) or the family and medical leave insurance program under chapter 50A.04 RCW (paid family and medical leave program) may continue to receive the employer contribution toward school employees benefits board (SEBB) insurance coverage in accordance with the federal FMLA or RCW 50A.04.245. The school employee may also continue current supplemental life, supplemental accidental death and dismemberment (AD&D), and supplemental long-term disability insurance. The school employee's SEBB organization is responsible for determining if the school employee is eligible for leave under FMLA and the duration of such leave. The employment security department is responsible for determining if the school employee is eligible for leave under the paid family and medical leave program.
(2) If a school employee's monthly premium or applicable premium surcharges remain unpaid for sixty days from the original due date, the school employee's SEBB benefits will be terminated retroactive to the last day of the month for which the monthly premium and applicable premium surcharges were paid.
(3) If a school employee exhausts the period of leave approved under FMLA or paid family and medical leave, SEBB benefits may be continued by self-paying the premium and applicable premium surcharges set by the health care authority (HCA), with no contribution from the SEBB organization, as described in WAC 182-31-100(1).
