Coverage & Eligibility Requirements​​​

​​Our benefits program provides coverage to employees, spouses and children who meet certain requirements beginning on day one of employment. You are eligible for medical, dental, vision, flexible spending accounts, short and long-term disability, life and AD&D insurance if:

        • You are a full time employee regularly scheduled to work at least 60 hours per pay period; or
        • You are a part-time employee regularly scheduled to work 40 hours, but fewer than 60 hours per pay period. 

​Eligible Dependents

If you cover yourself as an active employee, you may enroll your eligible dependents in certain benefits. Eligible dependents include your spouse or common-law spouse (as recognized by Texas state law), your children or your spouse's children up to the age 26,* including:

        •  Natural
        •  Step
        •  Legally adopted 
        •  In the process of legal adoption
        •  Foster
        •  Covered by a Qualified Medical Child
        • Support Order
        • Child(ren) of whom you have legal Guardianship


Please note, you may be required to provide documentation through the dependent verification process to ensure family members meet the eligibility criteria described above. If documentation is requested, it is important to submit it in a timely manner to ensure dependents remain covered. 

*Subject to approval, the age limit is waived if the child is unmarried, physically and mentally incapacitated and unable to earn an independent living; dependent on you for at least 50% of financial support; claimed by you as a dependent for federal taxes; and disabled and covered under the plan before age 26.

Does Your Dependent also Work at Baylor Scott & White?

If you and a dependent both work for Baylor Scott & White, only one of you can be covered as a dependent. Neither can be covered as both an employee and a dependent.​​
