Enrollment Deadlines

You must enroll in one of these medical options within 30 days of your date of hire. If you miss the enrollment deadline, you will not be able to enroll in a medical option until the annual open enrollment period.

Effective Date of Coverage

Your coverage will be effective on the first day of the first full month of your employment. If you hire date is July 1 (or the first working day in July), your coverage will be effective July 1. If you hire date is July 10, your coverage will be effective on August 1. The effective date of coverage is not up to the employer or employee; it is based without exception on the employee’s date of hire.

Significant Life Changes

If you experience a significant life change during the year (e.g., marriage, divorce, birth or adoption of a child, loss of spousal coverage) you may make changes outside of the open enrollment period as long as you file the necessary paperwork within 30 days of the event and there is no break in coverage.
