PLEASE NOTE: If you have submitted an Online GA Benefits Election/Waiver Form, you may disregard this notice.
Graduate students who are newly appointed as Graduate Assistants, Graduate Interns or Graduate Fellows beginning January 5, 2018, have 31 days from their appointment start date to enroll in or waive coverage. For those enrolling in coverage, the coverage will be effective February 1, 2018. Please note, any enrollment for you plus one dependent or you plus your family requires proof of relationship documentation, such as a marriage certificate for a spouse or a long form birth certificate for a child.
Eligible participants who do not make an election within 31 days of their appointment start date are considered late enrollees. Late enrollees may enroll in coverage during the GA Open Enrollment Period held annually from April 15 through May 15 for a September 1st effective date of the following plan year.
Graduate Assistants, Graduate Interns and Graduate Fellows who are continuing their appointment* for the 2018 Spring semester and are currently enrolled in the Connecticut Partnership plan do not need to re-enroll. Coverage will continue with current elections. Please note, plan changes for continuing appointments may be made during the Open Enrollment Period, which is held annually from April 15 through May 15.
*Continuation does NOT qualify as a status change to make elections/changes to your coverage.
