Elect/Change Your Benefits

Generally, you may enroll or make changes in your health and dental coverage only when you are first hired by the state, or during the annual Open Enrollment. However, certain changes can be made at other times when you experience a qualified life event.

Your request to add or cancel coverage must be consistent with the life event that has taken place.

When Life Events Affect Benefits

You are responsible for notifying your agency HR office and MMB, if you experience a life event that could affect your benefits. In most cases, it is necessary to provide a third party's written verification of a life event. Failure to notify MMB of a life event that affects your coverage within the allotted time period will affect insurance benefits for you and all your dependents, such as loss of COBRA rights or personal responsibility for unpaid medical and/or dental claims.
