    2020 Health Insurance

    For those Kroger members wanting to qualify for health insurance coverage for 2020 you should be building on this hours minimum and using your seniority to hit these hours requirements.

    Eligibility will continue to be based on employee status, seniority and hours worked, although the hours required for eligibility have changed.

    The eligibility requirements are as follows:

    • For Employee Only Coverage, the number of hours required for eligibility will increase from an average of 24 hours per week to an average of 27 hours per week (1,404 hours per year).

    • For Employee and Children Coverage, the number of hours required for eligibility will increase from an average of 28 hours per week to an average of 30 hours per week (1,560 hours per year).

    • For Family Coverage, the number of hours required for eligibility will increase from an average of 28 hours per week to an average of 36 hours per week (1,872 hours per year).

    The standard 12-month measurement and stability periods will continue to be used. Your hours worked between November 1, 2018 and October 31, 2019 will be used to determine your eligibility for coverage effective January 1, 2020 based on the new requirements.
