Health, Dental, and Vision Insurance Benefits
The university allows eligible employees to cover one “qualifying adult” on their health, dental, and vision insurance plans. A qualifying adult:
- Must be over 18 years of age, and
- Must not be eligible for Medicare, and
- If a blood relative (or relative by adoption or marriage) must be of the same or younger generation of the employee (as used in KRS 391.010), and
- Must be residing in the employee's household and have done so for a period of at least 12 months, and
- Must be financially interdependent (for example, have joint checking account or joint mortgage) for 12 months or longer, and
- Must be unmarried.
An employee has the choice of covering his/her legal spouse OR one qualifying adult on his/her UofL medical, dental, and vision plan, but not both. The employee bears the full cost of covering a qualified adult and the qualifying adult's children, if any.

The university's definition of "immediate family" includes qualified adults and allows employees to apply the definition to their use of sick, bereavement, parental, and family and medical leave.
