Section 260. Changes in coverage

2 AAC 39.260. Changes in coverage

(a) A benefit recipient may discontinue dental-vision-audio insurance coverage for a recipient's covered dependent at any time. Once coverage has been discontinued it may be reelected only in accordance with (b) or (d) of this section.

(b) A benefit recipient may add coverage for the recipient's eligible dependents only when a change has occurred in the recipient's family structure. A change in family structure occurs at the marriage of a recipient or at the birth or adoption of a first child. Application for the additional coverage must be made within 120 days after the change in the recipient's family structure occurs.

(c) An application for a change in coverage must be submitted in writing and is subject to verification by the administrator. A change in coverage based on an application that is postmarked or received on or before the 15th of a month, will be effective on the first day of the next calendar month. A change in coverage based on an application that is postmarked or received after the 15th of a month, will be effective no later than the first day of the second month after the date of postmark or receipt of the application. Retroactive adjustments of premiums will be made if necessary.
