Active Military Duty
Employee Called to Active Military Duty
Medical plans offered by U.T. Dallas may exclude benefits for any services or supplies for injuries sustained while on active duty. Please be aware of this exclusion as you make insurance decisions.
While on military leave without pay you may continue insurance coverage for yourself and/or covered dependents. You must pay the portion that is usually paid by the state, as well as any out-of-pocket expenses. If the total monthly premium is not paid when due, coverage will be cancelled. Also, if your final paycheck does not cover your insurance deductions, you must submit a payment or your coverage will be cancelled.

Dependent Called to Active Military Duty
If your dependent is called to active military duty, they no longer meet the definition of an eligible dependent. Therefore, you must drop them from all coverage.
When your dependent is discharged from active military duty, you may reinstate all coverage in which they were previously enrolled, as long as the Dependent still meets the definition of an eligible dependent (e.g., under age 25 and unmarried). Contact your Benefits Rep for more information.
