Are your children still covered under your plan?
Students & Dependents
The sights and sounds of “back to school” time are everywhere. Soon, students will be spotted with their crisp new clothes and clean backpacks hesitantly walking toward the yellow school bus, while others balance their new lunch box as they ride their bikes with friends.
This is also a great time to review the health insurance of your dependents. Once a dependent child reaches age 21, insurer carriers will terminate them as an eligible dependent under your Health and/or Dental benefits. Coverage can be re-activated on the day they commence attending an accredited educational institution, college or university as a student, on a full-time basis.
One thing to remember is that the enrollment & eligibility of students varies depending on your insurance carrier; some require paperwork, which takes time to process, so make sure to contact your Silverberg Account Manager for the process specific to your carrier.
