Or. Admin. R. 111-015-0005 - All Other Benefit-Eligible Employees Not Included in Emergency Family Medical Leave Expansion Act during the COVID-19 pandemic

(1) Benefit eligible full-time and part-time employees who do not meet current benefit eligibility due to their furlough or layoff directly related to COVID-19 and who are not in a current stability period under the Affordable Care Act or on approved FMLA or other protected leave, remain eligible for active OEBB benefits.
(a) This rule is to be used in those temporary situations when the intent is to bring the employee back to active coverage. If the intent is to terminate the employee's position or reduce this position to a non-benefit eligible position, then the employing entity needs to terminate active benefits and offer the employee COBRA at the end of the month in which this determination is made.
(b) This rule does not stipulate premium arrangements as those are based on an agreement between the employee and their employer.
(2) An employee may choose to self-pay or cancel their optional coverages through their employing entity. Failure to self-pay for these optional coverages mat result in the cancellation of these coverages. These optional coverages may be reinstated when the employee returns to work. The employee may have a lapse in these coverages and may not use these benefits during their period of premium non-payment. If an employee cancels their Long-Term Care coverage, the employee must re-apply at their current age upon returning to work.
