Not sure what a “dependent” is?
A dependent is someone you claim on your tax deduction as a personal exemption. Examples of dependents could be:
Domestic partner also includes individuals who meet criteria 1-5 above and sign an affidavit attesting to that fact, if the employer has elected this option.
You can discontinue coverage for a spouse, domestic partner or child during open enrollment and during other times of the year. Contact your employer or Sharp Health Plan to find out when you can drop a dependent from your plan.
Adding someone to your plan when open enrollment is closed
Open enrollment for coverage starting January 1, 2016 has begun. If you or a loved one needs coverage before this time, then you'll need a qualifying event to add someone new to your plan. Qualifying events are things like a marriage, births or adoptions. Check the list of qualifying events to see if you qualify for special enrollment coverage.
Having a baby is considered a “qualifying event,” and your little bundle of joy will get special enrollment coverage under your family plan automatically for their first 31 days.
If your benefit plan is provided by your employer and you'd like to continue coverage beyond the first 31 days, then contact your employer’s human resources department. Your employer can give you instructions on how to add your newborn to your plan. If you purchased your family plan on your own, fill out an enrollment application or contact Customer Care for personalized help.
Absolutely. Your employer may have some guidelines in place, so it might help to talk to someone in human resources to get the full explanation. But, your children are eligible as well as significant others if you’re legally married or a registered domestic partner.
It depends. Your child will still be covered so long as he or she lives - or keeps permanent residency - within the plan’s service area. Log in to your account to see your plan’s coverage.
