Submit completed enrollment form within 31 days of birth date. Coverage becomes effective on newborn's birth date. Subscribers who fail to enroll the newborn during the 31-day period may not enroll them at a later 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.

If child is not enrolled within the 31-day period, they cannot be enrolled at a later date.

When dependent (grandchild’s parent) loses coverage or is no longer eligible, their child’s coverage also ends.
