AmeriCorps Health Insurance
Any member contracted to serve and serving in full-time status (40 hours per week) and serving a contract 6 months or longer is eligible for the Corps Network health insurance, which is provided through Cigna. This is for individuals only. No family members.
How do members sign up?
When members fill out their employment paperwork, they must opt in or out of the insurance. AmeriCorps Program staff will enroll that member based on their decision. After enrollment, the member is in charge of creating their online account to access insurance cards and other information.
