Coverage at hire or initial benefits eligibility
Upon hire, you are guaranteed coverage of $30,000 regardless of health status. If you wish to elect more than $30,000 coverage for his or her spouse, you must:
- Enroll online via myHR and submit an Evidence of Insurability (EOI) form to the Benefits Division to apply for the additional amount above the guaranteed issue amount of $30,000.
After initial eligibility, you may increase coverage up to $30,000 within 31 days of a qualifying change in family or employment status without underwriting online via myHR. Coverage amounts greater than $30,000 require underwriting.
Changes during Open Enrollment require the submission of an EOI and approval by the sponsoring insurance company.
