How to Add a Dependent to Coverage

This function should be used in the following instances:

  • If dependent(s) were not added to all applicable coverage options by the employee through the New Hire Orientation, Qualifying Event, or Open Enrollment module; Administrators have permissions to add/edit/terminate any dependent coverage on behalf of the employee.

Dependents can only be added to eligible plans that the employee is enrolled in. All employee plan information must be entered before any dependents can be added to a plan.

To add a coverage for a dependent, please see the  How to Cover Dependents section earlier in this guide. A dependent coverage can only be added by editing the coverage for the employee.

A spouse dependent record must be created first before adding Dependent Life Coverage.
