expatriate health plans

Your health plan coverage depends on your expatriate assignment.

You're eligible for the following health plans if you are a U.S.-payroll employee and are on a residential expatriate assignment outside the U.S. Note that your Chevron medical benefits include prescription drug and vision coverage.

Chevron has established a tobacco surcharge. This means there are different monthly rates for medical and supplemental life insurance coverage for tobacco and non-tobacco users. All U.S.-payroll employees are required to certify their tobacco use status.

You're eligible to participate in the same life insurance, accident insurance, disability and retirement benefits as other U.S.-payroll employees. See the summary plan descriptions page for a listing of those benefits.

If you are a U.S.-payroll employee on a rotational expatriate assignment outside the U.S. you are eligible for the same plans as U.S.-payroll employees that work in the U.S. See the summary plan descriptions page for a listing of those benefits.

If you are an expatriate on the global offshore payroll, you're eligible for the same plans as other global offshore payroll employees. See the global offshore payroll benefits website (intranet only) for a listing of those benefits.

You're eligible for the following health plans if you are an expatriate employee on assignment in the U.S. 

benefit resources

are your dependents enrolled?

You have been automatically enrolled in the health plans listed above as part of the expatriate transfer process. However, if you have dependents, they have not been automatically enrolled in these plans. You must call the Human Resources Service Center within 31 days of your transfer date if you want to cover your dependents. If you do not notify the HR Service Center within 31 days of your transfer date, you generally must wait until the next open enrollment period (usually held in October) to enroll your dependents. Elections you make during open enrollment are effective on January 1 of the following year.

who can i cover?

U.S. health plans have special rules about who you can cover in your health plans. You can generally cover your children, your spouse and your domestic partner. Be sure to read all the rules about who you can cover under your benefits. Open each plan's summary plan description (listed above) and go to the Eligibility section to read the rules.

had a recent change in life?

You must call the Human Resources Service within 31 days of a qualifying life event, such as you get married or have a baby to enroll dependents or make other changes to your coverage. If you miss the 31-day deadline, you generally must wait until the next open enrollment period (usually held each October) to update your benefits.
