Do you have a household status change?
A household status change is a marriage, divorce, adoption, birth of a child, loss of a job, or loss of medical coverage through no fault of your own.
If you have a household status change, you have 30 days from the date of the event to add, drop, or change benefits (allowable changes to plans is limited to specific events). After 30 days you will be unable to make plan adds/drops/changes until the next Open Enrollment or household status change.
In order to make changes to your benefits, you must provide documentation supporting the event in order to add/drop/change benefits. (Example: marrige certificate, adoption paperwork from the courts, a letter from your spouses employer advising of the loss of job and/or coverage)
