Submit online "Birth of grandchild" eForm (or a completed Enroll/Change/Cancel 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.

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.

Enrollment is subject to receipt and approval of proof of eligibility. Proof for the newborn child is due within 90 days from the newborn's date of birth.

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.
