Health Insurance

Saint Mary's College offers three (3) Preferred Provider Option (PPO) health insurance plans to all full-time employees. Plans are offered through Christian Brothers Employee Benefit Trust with access to Blue Cross Blue Shield of Illinois Network. New hires have a 30-day election period to enroll. ​Benefits are available on a single or family plan basis. The family plan covers the employee’s spouse and her/his dependent children under the age of 26. If an employee declines coverage upon hire, enrollment can only occur during the annual open enrollment period or in the case of a qualifying event. The health insurance plan operates on our fiscal year (June 1 through May 31), with open enrollment in early May with an effective date of June 1. Effective January 1, 2019, our plan year will transition to a calendar year cycle.

If you are enrolled in the Christian Brothers health plan, you can register online at for access to numerous resources to help manage your health. On the Christian Brothers site, you can find a provider, access health & wellness programs, and view claims submitted through your health insurance.
