My spouse/domestic partner is covered under his/her employer’s group health plan. If they lose coverage from their employer, do I need to wait until open enrollment to add him/her as a dependent on my plan?

You will not have to wait until open enrollment to add your spouse/domestic partner. The loss of employer-sponsored group coverage is a qualified family status event. However, you must submit a request within 60-days of the date your spouse/domestic partner’s other coverage ended. A dependent loses coverage event requires a certificate of credible coverage letter with the dependent’s name and date of termination of coverage, and a copy of your certified marriage certificate or certificate of domestic partnership to complete the event.
