We previously communicated about options that may be available to groups to help group members who may need coverage support due to COVID-19. We want to remind you about the relaxed eligibility requirements and optional special enrollment period.
We have relaxed the eligibility requirements for currently enrolled/covered group members.
Special Enrollment Period
We are also offering groups (ASO and fully insured) an optional special enrollment period from March 30 through April 30. This would apply to eligible employees and their dependents who previously declined coverage and now want to enroll, or currently enrolled employees who wish to add an eligible spouse or dependent on their existing coverage.
Employers do not need to notify their account representative if they plan to use this special enrollment option. Employers can continue to use the standard eligibility process for their market segment to add employees.
