Open Enrollment 2019

It will soon be Benefits Open Enrollment time for those who meet eligibility requirements.

You may be eligible for coverage now even if you declined when you first started working. If you are interested in benefits coverage, you should complete this form to receive additional information on eligibility and enrollment details.

An enrollment package will be MAILED TO YOUR HOME, so please make sure that you have updated us with your correct mailing address if you’ve moved in the last year.

Good News! If you already have coverage you don’t have to do anything. This is for employees who do not currently have coverage. If you already have coverage you can expect enrollment information for the upcoming plan year to be mailed to your home.

If you are declining enrollment in the Daniel G Schuster, LLC Health and Welfare Benefits Plan’s health coverage options for yourself or your dependents (including your spouse) because of other health insurance or group health plan coverage, you may be able to enroll yourself and your dependents in the Plan’s health coverage features if you or your dependents lose eligibility for that other coverage (Or if the employer stops contributing towards your or your dependents’ other coverage). However, you must request enrollment within 30 days after you or your dependents’ other coverage ends (or after the employer stops contributing toward the other coverage).

In addition, if you have a new dependent as a result of marriage, birth, adoption, or placement for adoption, you may be able to enroll yourself and your dependents. However, you must request enrollment within 30 days after the marriage, birth, adoption, or placement for adoption.

Also, if you or your eligible dependent are covered under Medicaid or a State Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) and that coverage ends, you may be able to enroll yourself and any affected dependent in this Plan’s medical coverage. You must request enrollment within 60 days after the Medicaid or CHIP coverage ends. If you or your eligible dependent becomes eligible under Medicaid or a State CHIP plan for financial assistance to pay for health coverage under this Plan, you may be able to enroll yourself and any affected dependent in this Plan. You must request enrollment within 60 days after the date a government agency determines that you are eligible for that financial assistance.
