Who is eligible

Who is eligible

You

If you are a full-time or part-time associate regularly working at least 24 hours per week, you are eligible for coverage in Allscripts Health and Welfare benefit plans.

Your dependents

Your dependents who are eligible for coverage include your:

  • Legal spouse or domestic partner.
  • Dependent children up to age 26 (or older, if your child is permanently and totally disabled).

Important notes:

  • When covering a domestic partner, contributions for your domestic partner will be deducted on a post-tax basis. You will also pay taxes on the imputed income on the portion of benefits paid for by Allscripts for your domestic partner to be covered.
  • Have your dependents’ Social Security numbers (SSNs) on hand when enrolling them in benefits. U.S. health care reform requires SSNs to be reported to the IRS for each covered individual.
  • If you add a dependent to your health insurance coverage who does not qualify as a tax dependent under the Internal Revenue Code Section 152 and Notice 2010-38 (such as a domestic partner), the Fair Market Value (FMV) of Allscripts contribution toward that coverage is considered a taxable fringe benefit, subject to tax withholding. This calculated fringe benefit is known as imputed income.
