Submit completed enrollment form within 31 days of birth date. Coverage becomes effective on newborn's birth date. MCHCP reserves the right to request proof of eligibility.

If more than one medical plan is offered by your employer, medical plans may be changed when adding dependents due to this life event. If changing medical plans, any amounts paid toward the deductible and out-of-pocket maximum will transfer to the new plan.

Advise MCHCP of newborn child's Social Security number verbally, in writing, or through myMCHCP as soon as it is received. Failure to provide proof of dependent's Social Security number in a timely manner may result in loss of coverage.

Active subscribers who fail to enroll during the 31-day period may enroll during the next Open Enrollment for coverage effective the following January.

Retiree subscribers who fail to enroll the child during the 31-day period cannot enroll them at a later date.
