Dependent eligibility verification


Dependent Eligibility Verification


Your health benefits are an important part of your life and we are continually working to provide good service while keeping costs as low as possible. To do that we need to ensure that the district health plan pays claims only for those dependents who are eligible for benefits. All of the following criteria must be met for a dependent child to be eligible:

  • Coverage will be offered for children until age 26
  • Children must be enrolled according to the terms of the plan
  • Coverage of enrolled children will cease at age 26 unless applicable law requires us to offer coverage for a longer period of time




Please come to the Benefits Office to enroll your newborn within 31 days of birth with a state or hospital birth certificate. Failure to enroll your child within this period will result in loss of medical coverage. You will need to enroll your dependent during the next open enrollment period for coverage to begin the following fiscal year.
