You and/or Your Dependents Lose Other Coverage
If you declined company coverage because you had coverage from another source and you lose that coverage, you may be eligible to enroll for company coverage because of your HIPAA Special Enrollment rights. Similarly, if you declined company coverage for an eligible dependent because he or she had coverage from another source and he or she loses that coverage, you may be eligible to enroll your eligible dependent for company coverage because of your HIPAA Special Enrollment rights. See "HIPAA Special Enrollment Rights" in the Health Care Participation section for more details.
Both of these situations are Qualified Status Changes (QSCs) that give you the opportunity to adjust your company coverage in ways consistent with your change in status.
Any changes based on a QSC must be submitted within 31 days of the change in status. For more information, see the subsections in the plan descriptions titled "Changing Your Coverage Midyear." You will be required to provide documentation of the new dependent's eligibility for coverage.
If you are using the change to add a new dependent, you will be required to provide documentation of the new dependent's eligibility for coverage.
