|Student Health Plan |
If you did not enroll in the Student Health Program because you had coverage through another source (such as a spouse's employer or COBRA), and you subsequently lost that coverage, you may enroll for medical coverage under the Student Health Program. You must request this special enrollment within 30 days of losing your other coverage. Student Health Program medical coverage will become effective on the date after you lost the other coverage.
The special enrollment provision does not apply if you lost coverage under the other plan because you did not make required contributions or if you lost coverage for cause (such as submitting a fraudulent claim).
Dependents whom you acquire through marriage, birth, adoption, placement for adoption, or domestic partnership may be granted a special enrollment, as long as you have requested coverage within 30 days following the date you acquired the dependent. In the case of marriage, medical coverage will become effective on the date of your marriage, or you have the option to begin your coverage no later than the first of the month following the date of marriage. In the case of birth, adoption, or placement for adoption, coverage will become effective on the date of the event.
