MMC Benefits Handbook
When Participation Starts
Your participation will start on:
  • your effective date of enrollment, if you enroll within 30 days of becoming eligible
  • January 1 if you enroll during Annual Enrollment
  • The date of your qualified family status change as long as you enroll within 30 days following the event, and as long as you experience a qualified family status change that allows you to begin participation.
Participation does not continue automatically from plan year to plan year; you have to enroll during the Annual Enrollment period.
Expenses incurred before your participation begins cannot be reimbursed.
