MMC Benefits Handbook
Family Member Eligibility
Your eligible family members can use Best Doctors. An eligible family member is your:
- domestic partner
- child for whom you are the legal guardian
- child of a domestic partner
- legally adopted child
- biological child
Dependent children are eligible until the end of the calendar year in which they attain age 26. This eligibility provision applies even if your child is married, has access to health coverage through his or her employer, doesn't attend school full-time or live with you, and is not your tax dependent.
Only dependent children over age 18 are permitted to call Best Doctors. For dependent children under age 18, a parent or guardian must call on their behalf.
Marsh & McLennan Companies has the right to require documentation to verify the relationship (such as a copy of the court order appointing legal guardianship). Company medical coverage does not cover foster children or other children living with you, including your grandchildren, unless you are their legal guardian with full financial responsibility—that is, you or your spouse claims them as a dependent on your annual tax return.
