Re: Additional Special Enrollment Period for Adult Children

Summary: With a view to including everyone who wishes to participate, HRS is scheduling a second special enrollment period to extend health insurance coverage to adult children of UVM employees up to the age of 26.

UVM has scheduled a second special enrollment period from November 1 to 30 to allow for the enrollment of adult children up to the age of 26 who had previously been ineligible for healthcare coverage. (The Affordable Care Act provides for coverage of adult children on their parent's health insurance until they reach age 26.) Coverage added within this enrollment period will begin on December 1.

For more information and links to the necessary forms, please see the HRS memo dated August 2, 2010. Additional background may be found on the Health Reform Update page.

If you do not wish to make a change to your coverage (or do not have a child up to the age of 26 who was previously ineligible for coverage), of if you already changed your coverage back in September, your benefits will not change and no action is required on your part.
