While the initial enrollment has ended, benefits eligible employees, their spouses and other eligible family members are still able to apply for coverage under the program. However, all current benefits eligible applicants will be required to complete a Long Form application, which includes a full medical questionnaire.
The only exception to full medical underwriting is for New Hire employees and their spouses. New Hire employees and their spouses will be eligible to apply for this coverage once they become benefits eligible. From that date they have 30 days to apply for this coverage and receive favorable underwriting as follows:
New Hire Underwriting
|Employees < age 66||No Medical Underwriting|
|Spouses < age 66||Streamlined Underwriting (short from application)|
|Employees age 66 to 69||Streamlined Underwriting (short from application)|
|Spouses > age 66||Full underwriting (long form application)|
|Employees > age 69||Full underwriting (long form application)|
Once the new hire enrollment period has passed, new hires and their spouses can still enroll in the Program, but will be required to complete a long form application and go through full underwriting.
