When to Enroll Dependents in Your Health Plan

To add an eligible dependent to your plan, you must do so:

  • At the time of initial enrollment,
  • During your annual open enrollment, or
  • Within 31 days of an event that makes your dependent eligible for coverage under your HMSA plan.

Contact your plan administrator for more information or to add a dependent who is eligible for coverage.

Note: HMSA’s Plan for Federal Employees (formerly Federal Plan 87) has different enrollment time frames for your dependents who become eligible for coverage under your health plan. Please contact your plan administrator or HMSA Customer Relations for more information.
