The MUS Benefit Plan offers a Dependent Premium Hardship Waiver to allow health care coverage for children. The family must first apply for Healthy Montana Kids (HMK) for all children under the age of 19. If HMK denies coverage and the family has a financial hardship, an application may be submitted to the MUS Benefits office requesting the Dependent Premium Hardship Waiver. If the total household income is not more than 115% of the HMK guidelines, the dependent children will be eligible for the waiver for the plan year. The family must re-apply for HMK and the Dependent Premium Hardship Waiver each Plan year in order to be eligible for the waiver.

For more information, please contact your Campus Benefits Representative (CBR) or call MUS Employee Benefits at 877-501-1722.
