How to Sign Up

You'll need to make selections for basic medical and dental coverage within your first 35 days of employment. In most cases, coverage is effective following a 35 calendar day waiting period. You must also enroll in the family medical or dental coverage, flexible spending accounts, or long-term disability (if eligible) within your first 35 days or wait until the next Open Enrollment period. Open Enrollment is in the fall of each year. Limited amounts of employee and spouse life insurance, child life insurance, and the short-term disability coverage may also be applied for within your first 35 days of employment without providing evidence of good health.

If you apply after your first 35 days of employment you will need to provide evidence of good health. Your application may be accepted or declined at that point. Applications for long-term care coverage always require evidence of good health.
