To enroll your dependent child under the health plan, submit a completed Family Update Form
. You must submit the completed enrollment form with the appropriate documentation to the Fund Office
within 30 days of the event. If you do not enroll your dependent in 30 days, claims will be denied until you submit the required information.
Your natural child is eligible for coverage on the date of his or her birth. If you adopt a child, have a child placed with you for adoption, or acquire a stepchild through marriage, he or she will be eligible for coverage on the date of placement or marriage, as long as you are responsible for healthcare coverage and your child meets the Plan’s definition of a dependent child.
