An application to add a newborn child to State Group Health Insurance coverage must be submitted to Benefits Administration within 60 days of the newborn’s birthdate.
To add a newborn child to State Group Health Insurance coverage, fill out an Enrollment Change Application:
You are also required to submit a copy of the birth certificate or mother’s copy from the hospital along with the Enrollment Change Application to your Agency Benefits Coordinator (ABC).
The child’s coverage will be effective on their birthdate.
The ABC will review the documents, sign the Enrollment Change Application and submit it to Benefits Administration for final approval and to key the coverage.
NOTE: The State Group Health Insurance Plan does not prorate premiums. If the effective date due to newborn is a date other than the first of the month, you will be required to pay the premium for the entire month.
