Domestic partner benefits are generally not qualified for tax-exempt status under employer Section 125 cafeteria plans. This is an IRS regulation that has nothing to do with your particular plan.

What you're seeing is the tax-free contribution for yourself (and possibly dependents), and an after tax contribution for your domestic partner. Sometimes this appears as a separate contribution, sometimes the contribution toward the domestic partner is imputed as income and taxed that way.
