Q: How do I see my benefits selections?

  • To view your benefits selections, please log into Rippling.

Q. Does Sourcegraph offer short term disability and long term disability?

  • At this time, Sourcegraph does not offer STD and LTD but we are always evaluating our benefit options.

Q. Do our health benefits cover us while traveling internationally?

  • They do not, we recommend using a travel insurance for the duration of your trip and expensing this. A common one used for US teammates is GeoBlue.

Q. How do I make changes to my insurance in the case of a qualifying life event (QLE)?

  • A Qualifying Life Event (QLE) is a change in your situation, such as getting married or having a baby, that can make you eligible to enroll in health insurance outside of Sourcegraph’s annual Open Enrollment period. If you have experienced a Qualifying Life Event (QLE) and need to update your insurance, you will initiate this process via Rippling. Note: the People Team cannot make updates to benefits on behalf of teammates outside of new hire and open enrollment periods.

Q. What do I do if I have a gap in insurance coverage? (US teammates)

  • If you are joining or leaving Sourcegraph and want to avoid having a gap in coverage, you can explore COBRA options. If you have dental and vision insurance at the time you leave Sourcegraph, you will continue receiving those same benefits through COBRA. Benefits through COBRA will expire at the end of the month that you leave Sourcegraph.

Q. What do I do if my medication or procedure is not covered by our insurance plan?

  • Our insurance plan cannot be augmented to cover specific medications. Please work with your healthcare provider and contact Lumity to verify.
