What is a co-pay?
A co-pay is the flat amount you are responsible for paying for a covered service after you’ve met your deductible.
What is open enrollment, and how does it affect me?
Open enrollment is the designated time each year when you can enroll in health insurance benefits. Employees have two open enrollment opportunities each year:
- When they join the company and can select their initial plan, also known as new hire enrollment
- When the company’s BlueCross BlueShield policy renews in on the company’s plan year.
Unless a qualifying life event occurs, open enrollment is the only time an employee can enroll in benefits.
What is a qualifying life event?
A qualifying life event is a change that enables employees to enroll in benefits outside of open enrollment. A qualifying life event can include one of the following situations:
1) marriage / domestic partnership
2) divorce or separation
3) birth or adoption of a child
4) loss of previous coverage
5) moving (this is not a guaranteed event, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information on what qualifies).
When you have a qualifying life event, you can make updates to your benefits coverage by submitting proof of the QLE within 30 days of the event within your Justworks account.
I want to add a dependent to my coverage. How can I do that?
Dependents must be added to your plan during open enrollment unless they experience a qualifying life event. If a qualifying event does occur, simply navigate to your Benefits in Justworks and select the Change Coverage button to signal that you need to add a dependent to your plan.
I want to change my plan selection. How can I do that?
You can change your plan if you’re still in open enrollment or if you have a qualifying life event. In either of these cases, please reach out to email@example.com.
I want to cancel my coverage. How can I do that?
To cancel your benefits outside of the open enrollment period, you will need a qualifying life event, such as a spouse obtaining new group health insurance. In this case, we would need a letter from the new insurance company showing the new coverage effective date. We need to ensure there isn’t a lapse in coverage.
What are the eligibility requirements for health insurance?
An employee must be classified as “full-time” or “part-time” working 30+ hours per week to be eligible for health insurance in Justworks. Contractors are not eligible for health insurance.
