Changes to health plan elections can only be made in accordance with Section 125 of the Internal Revenue Code (IRC) rules and the written cafeteria plan document. Under this rule, changes to health insurance coverage after the Open Enrollment period can only be made if/when an employee experiences an IRS approved qualifying event that affects eligibility for coverage in accordance with the cafeteria plan. These qualifying events are most commonly referred to as a “change in status” and include, but are not limited to:
- Divorce or separation
- Death of a spouse or other dependent
- Birth or adoption of a child
- Change in child dependent status
- Change in spouse benefits or employment
Note: Any changes in elections must be made within 30 days of the qualifying event and require submission of proper documentation. Except in the cases of birth or adoption, coverage will be effective on the first of the month following the event or submission of the event documentation, whichever comes first.
