What is self-pay?
You have to work 240 hours every 2 months to keep your benefits (that's about 30 hours a week). If you don’t work enough hours, you can pay us for the hours you’re short. This lets you keep your health benefits.
You only work 230 hours in 2 months.
You are short 10 hours.
You can Self-Pay for the 10 hours and keep your health benefits.
If you worked no hours in 2 months, you can do a “full self-pay” for all 240 required hours.
If you are on maternity leave, you can also self-pay for up to 9 consecutive work periods. Call Customer Service at
702-733-9938 to make a maternity leave self-pay.
How will I know if I haven’t worked enough hours?
You will get a Self-Pay notice in the mail. You must make your self-payment before the due date to keep your benefits.
We need to be able to mail you your Self-Pay notice. Please make sure your correct address is on file. You can change your contact information at any time

Things to know about Self-Pay
You can’t use self-pay to become eligible for benefits. It’s only to keep your benefits once you have them.
For each hour you’re short, you pay the same amount that your employer pays.
Self-payments are due at the end of every even-numbered month. This means February, April, June, August, October, and December.
You can only make 6 self-payments in a row. That’s 1 year total.
If you’re short hours and choose not to Self-Pay, you’ll lose your benefits.
To become eligible again, you have to restart the process. This means you have to work 360 hours within 3 months to be eligible. You’ll also have a 1-month wait again.
