MMC Benefits Handbook
About the Event
Your spouse losing coverage or changing their coverage under another employer plan are considered qualified family status changes. This means that you can change certain before-tax benefits without waiting until the next Annual Enrollment period.
Note: Your spouse changing, adding or dropping coverage during their Annual Enrollment window is not considered a qualified family status change.
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.
