Changing Your Coverage Midyear
If your doctor leaves a network, it does not qualify as an event that allows you to change coverage during the year. Each year during the fall Annual Benefits Enrollment, you may want to check with your provider to ensure that he or she plans to continue to participate in the network of your health care company.
The Medical, Dental and Vision Plan elections you make during Annual Benefits Enrollment will stay in effect through the next plan year (or the current plan year if you enroll during the year as a newly eligible employee). However, you may be permitted to change your elections before the next Annual Benefits Enrollment if you have a Qualified Status Change (QSC). A QSC does not permit you to change your health care company during the year under the Medical Plan. Please Note: Any changes you make during the year must be consistent with your QSC. More information on QSCs is located in the What Happens If section.
