Changes in Participation During the Year
A qualifying event only allows for changes to an existing election. If you did not make an election to participate in the Plan during Annual Enrollment or within 30 days of being eligible for benefits, a qualifying event will not allow for enrollment in the Plan mid-year. The only exception to this rule is in cases where there is a loss of other coverage.
