The Willoughby-Eastlake City Schools (WECS) health plan allows employees to elect coverage that includes a spouse. Spouses eligible for group health coverage through an employer or a retirement program must enroll in that coverage before they can be covered on the WECS plan except in the following circumstances.

  1. In the event that the spouse must pay fifty percent (50%) or more of the premium cost of their employer’s or retirement provider’s plan, that spouse is eligible for the district’s healthcare plan.

Spouses enrolled in the WECS health plan must provide annual documentation of their eligibility for other group health coverage. 

The Spousal Coverage Verification Form must be completed and signed by the spouse’s employer or retirement program. In the event that the spouse loses coverage with her/his employer or retirement provider, the spouse may re-enter the district’s health insurance plan.

Each year the Spousal Coverage Audit occurs immediately following the Open Enrollment. Failure to complete and return the Spousal Coverage Verification Form may result in delayed claim payments.
