After enrollment, you can make changes to most benefits only if you have a qualifying event, such as getting married or having a child. You have 30 days from the qualifying event to make changes (60 days for a new child), or you will have to wait until the next Open Enrollment period.
Qualifying Life Events
Once you enroll in or decline health and welfare coverage or participation in a flexible spending account (FSA), your election generally stays in effect for the entire plan year. You can make changes during the year only if you have a qualifying life event.
Benefit changes must be made within 30 days of the event unless otherwise noted, and are retroactive to the date of the qualifying change in status. Changes to your elections must be due to and consistent with the qualifying change in status.
Qualifying changes in status include:
- You have a baby, adopt, or have a child placed in your care for adoption (changes must be made within 60 days of the event).
- You get married, divorced, or legally separated, or your marriage is annulled.
- You gain a domestic partner, or lose one through termination of the domestic partnership or death.
- Your spouse or dependent dies.
- You, your spouse, or your dependent has a change in employment status resulting in a loss or gain of eligibility for coverage. For example, one of you:
- Takes or returns from an unpaid leave of absence
- Switches from full-time to part-time employment (or vice versa)
- Begins or ends employment (and is not rehired within 30 days)
- Your dependent gains or loses eligibility for coverage (for example, he or she becomes a legal dependent or turns 26).
- You, your spouse, or your dependent moves to a new place of residence, resulting in a loss or gain of eligibility for coverage (for example, you participate in an HMO move outside of the service area).
