2021-22 Benefits Guide

Qualifying Life Event

A Qualifying Life Event, as defined by the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), provides a special enrollment period for employees and dependents when there is a loss of other coverage or a gain of additional dependents (e.g., birth, adoption, and marriage). An employee may be able to enroll in coverage, change plan options, or change the dependents he or she covers during a plan year if the employee, or the dependent, has a special enrollment event under applicable law.

Changes in employee and/or dependent coverage must be requested within 31 days of the special enrollment event. If the employee does not request the appropriate changes during the applicable special enrollment period, the changes cannot be made until the next plan enrollment period or, if applicable, until another special enrollment event occurs.

What are the requirements to make a change?

You must send the corresponding supporting documentation as described below, along with a completed Benefits Change Form to MISD benefits department within 31 days of the event.

  • BIRTH – verification of birth facts from the hospital or birth certificate
    * The effective date of the newborn’s coverage is the date of birth. If the employee does not notify the Benefits Administrator within the above noted 31-day period, the request to add coverage will be denied — even if there would be no change in premium. It is not necessary to wait for the newborn’s Social Security number to enroll.
  • ADOPTION – adoption papers
  • DEATH – death certificate
  • MARRIAGE – marriage license
  • DIVORCE – divorce decree (first and last pages with judge’s signature)
  • INVOLUNTARY LOSS OF COVERAGE – certificate of creditable coverage or statement on letterhead from terminating group insurance plan. The following must be included:
    – who was covered
    – date the coverage ends
    – type of coverage
  • GAINING OTHER COVERAGE – statement on letterhead from new insurance provider or confirmation of enrollment. The following must be included:
    – who is covered
    – date coverage started
    – type of coverage
