If health and dental benefits are initially waived by a Plan Member because he or she had comparable coverage under a spousal plan, and his or her spouse subsequently loses coverage, the Plan Member has 31 days in which to apply for benefits under your program. If application is not made within 31 days, he or she would then be considered a “late applicant” and would have to submit Evidence of Insurability before the insurer would accept the Plan Member onto the plan.
Within 31 days:
After 31 days:
Submit the original signed Evidence of Insurability Form to to Morneau Shepell.
Note: The Plan Member does not have coverage until they receive confirmation from the Co-operators. They will receive a letter advising them of the insurance company’s decision (approval or declination).
Please provide the Plan Member with a Member Booklet.
