Employers

Each fiscal year, employers of the CORP have the option to elect to participate in the Public Safety/CORP Cancer Insurance Policy Program (CIP) upon the Terms of the Plan.  If the employer elects to participate, the employer accepts responsibility for the administrative functions of this program, which includes providing an open enrollment period each fiscal year to the eligible and newly hired employees.  The employer is responsible to annually collect and submit to the System the annual premiums on behalf of each employee that elects to participate in the CIP.

For employers electing to participate in the program, an CORP Employer Enrollment Form will need to be completed and returned to the System, along with the enrollment form and the premiums for the employees.
