Newborn Coverage Changes
Posted 6/03/13; Modified 10/23/13
The Office of Management and Enterprise Services (OMES) Employees Group Insurance Division’s (EGID) rule regarding the effective date for newborn coverage changed for charges incurred on or after January 1, 2013. The new rule states that the effective date for newborns added to the Plan is the first of the month of their birth. However, for the remainder of 2013, EGID will continue to allow newborns to be added the first of the month of birth or the first of the month following birth.
For charges incurred on or after January 1, 2014, newborns must be added to coverage the first of the month of the child's birth.
