Your spouse is eligible for coverage if you are legally married under Minnesota law.
Your spouse is not eligible if he/she works full-time for an employer with more than 100 employees and elects to receive cash or credits in place of health insurance, or in addition to a health plan with a deductible of $750 or greater.
The spouse eligibility questionnaire will help you determine if your spouse is eligible for coverage:
Documents will be needed to verify the eligibility of your dependents
You will be required to verify the eligibility of a spouse or dependent before they may be covered on the state's medical, dental or life coverage.
Once you enroll in benefits a letter requesting dependent verification documents will be mailed to the home address on file in the Employee Self Service system. This letter will tell you the documents you need to submit and how to submit them.
If you do not provide the requested verification documents by the deadline stated in your letter, spouses or dependents will be removed from your coverage back to the date of enrollment. You will not have the opportunity to re-enroll until the next Open Enrollment period or until you experience a qualifying life event.
Be sure to send all required documents and to contact SEGIP if you have a question regarding proof of eligibility, the required documents or the deadline to submit these.
The only time you can make changes to your benefits outside of Open Enrollment is when you experience a qualifying life event. For more information on what qualifies, visit the Change My Coverage page.
