[ ELIGIBILITY & ENROLLMENT ]JUMP IN TO
Your benefits journey starts here. You’ll find out how to enroll, who you can cover, and when you can make changes during the year.
All regular full-time, non-union employees are eligible.
You may also enroll your eligible dependents, including:
- Your legal spouse
- Your children under age 26 — biological, step, adopted or foster children
When does coverage start?
Open Enrollment: Your benefits begin on January 1 following Open Enrollment.
New Hire Enrollment: Your benefits begin on your hire date or the date you become a full-time employee.
When do I enroll?
If you are newly eligible, you must enroll within 30 days from your hire date or the date you become full-time. If you miss the deadline, you’ll automatically be enrolled in the Health Savings Account (HSA) plan with employee-only coverage and receive the monthly Tobacco Surcharge. Your next opportunity to make election changes is during the Annual Open Enrollment Period.
Here for Open Enrollment? You must enroll by November 6, 2019 to change your benefits for calendar year 2020. If you miss the deadline, your current benefits will automatically renew, except for HSA contributions and FSA elections.
When can I make changes?
Once you enroll, your choices are locked in until the end of the calendar year.
But, there are certain times when you can change benefits during the year. These are called “Major life events.” They include:
- Getting married or divorced
- Birth or adoption of a child
- Your spouse gaining or losing their job
- You gaining or losing work hours and the change affects your eligibility
- Your dependents losing eligibility
- You gaining or losing Medicaid or Child Health Insurance Program (CHIP)
You must make changes within 30 days (60 days for Medicaid and CHIP) from the event; your changes will be retroactive back to the date of event.
Life event changes for birth or adoption that are submitted between days 31 and 60 will be processed but coverage won’t be retroactive back to the date of the event.
Your life event changes must match the actual event. For example: If you adopt a child, you may enroll them in coverage, but you may not drop your spouse from coverage.
