If you add a dependent due to a marriage, birth, adoption, placement for adoption, or loss of other coverage, you have 31 days from the date of the event to add that dependent to your coverage.
If you previously waived coverage or did not elect coverage during your initial eligibility period, you can add coverage for yourself and your eligible dependents within 31 days of a marriage, birth, adoption, placement for adoption, or loss of other coverage (see below).
Any change you make to your coverage must be consistent with your life event. For example, if you get married, you can add your new spouse and their dependents to your coverage, but you cannot change your medical plan election until the next Open Enrollment period.
If 31 days have passed since your qualifying life event and you have not enrolled your dependents in coverage, you will not be able to add your dependents until the next Open Enrollment period or until you have another qualifying life event.
Important! When you make a change, your payroll deduction amount will update automatically to reflect any coverage tier or benefit changes.
