How do I enroll in benefits?
The week before your assignment is scheduled to start, you will receive onboarding information from our payroll processor, Workday. You will be able to enter direct deposit information and elect benefits as part of the onboarding process.
When is my insurance effective?
Your insurance coverage begins on the first day of your assignment and ends on your contract end date. If your assignment ends before the date listed in your contract, your coverage will end on the new date of termination.
Does Nomad contribute?
Yes! Nomad contributes towards employee health premiums but at this time does not contribute for dependents.
What is the deadline to enroll?
You have 30 days from your start date to elect or decline benefits. After this window, you will not be able to enroll in benefits unless you experience a Qualifying Life Event.
Can I add partners/dependents?
You can add a spouse, domestic partner, and/or dependents to your Nomad Insurance plan. These individuals should be added when you are enrolling in insurance for the first time. They cannot be added to your insurance after enrollment is complete, unless they are experiencing a Qualifying Life Event.
How often will my paycheck be deducted? Will my deductions be the same for every paycheck?
Deductions are made weekly, for up to four pay periods within a month. If a month has five pay periods, the fifth paycheck will not be deducted. Weekly deductions are typically for the same amount each week, but they will automatically be adjusted if you were covered for a period of time when you were not receiving a regular paycheck.
How will my insurance be affected if I have a break between assignments?
If you have accepted a new Nomad assignment that starts within 14 days of your current assignment’s end date, you will not experience any interruptions to your insurance coverage. If the break between assignments is longer than 14 days, your coverage will end with your current contract and you will be able to re-elect benefits for your next contract. During the time in between assignments, you will have the option to continue your coverage through COBRA (see below).
What is COBRA?
Consolidated Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Ast (COBRA) allows employees to continue to receive benefits under their employer’s group health plans after losing coverage due to termination. Should you elect coverage your new effective date will be the day following the date your coverage was terminated. Employees pay their entire premium, plus an administrative fee.
