“Child” means and includes the following:
"Spouse” means a person who is married under the laws of the State of Oregon or under the laws of any other state or country. The definition of spouse does not include a former spouse and a former spouse does not qualify as a dependent.
“Eligible Domestic Partner,” unless otherwise defined by a collective bargaining agreement or documented district policy in effect on January 31, 2008, means and includes the following:
A "retiree" enrolled in an OEBB retiree insurance plan who becomes eligible for Medicare coverage may not continue on an OEBB medical or vision plan, unless they are eligible for Medicare as a result of end-stage renal disease. OEBB benefits end the last day of the month prior to the Medicare effective date. The retiree is responsible for reporting to their Employing Entity and to OEBB when the retiree is covered by Medicare within 31 days after the Medicare coverage effective date. Failure to report within this timeframe may be considered intentional misrepresentation by OEBB and OEBB may retroactively terminate OEBB coverage back to the last day of the month prior to the Medicare effective date.
Eligible dependents of "retirees" who were covered on an OEBB medical plan at the time of retirement and who are eligible for Medicare, or who become eligible for Medicare, may not continue coverage on an OEBB medical or vision plan unless it is stated in a collective bargaining agreement or documented district policy in effect on or before February 1, 2010, that they may continue on OEBB medical plans until the retiree becomes eligible for Medicare with the following exception: OEBB coverage must end for Medicare-eligible dependents of a retiree enrolled on a Kaiser Permanente medical plan.
