About the Event
A loss of CHIP or Medicaid eligibility for you or your dependent(s) is considered a qualified family status change. This means if you or your dependent(s) aren't currently enrolled but are eligible for the Company's coverage, you can enroll in a medical plan without waiting until the next Annual Enrollment period. You may choose any option that would be available to a newly hired employee.
To enroll, or to change/increase your coverage levels, you must go to Colleague Connect ( within 60 calendar days of losing eligibility for CHIP or Medicaid coverage. If you do not enroll or add your eligible child or change/increase your coverage within the enrollment window specified, you must wait until the next Annual Enrollment period (generally each November). Any claims incurred during the timeframe in which you and/or your eligible child are not covered will not be eligible for reimbursement.
The Company reserves the right to ask you for proof of the qualified family status change. Failure to provide such proof within the timeframe specified may result in a loss of coverage and you may be required to pay for any services that you and your family members used while ineligible for coverage.
