Questions About Enrollment

Enrolling in the Plan

Once you have made your selection (no later than October 28, 2016), you will not be able to make changes to your benefits until the next open enrollment period (unless you experience a qualifying life event that will make you eligible for a special enrollment period)

What happens if you don’t enroll?

Eligible employees with no proof of other insurance who do not submit an enrollment form by October 28, 2016, will automatically be enrolled in GoldCare I. You will not be able to make changes at a later date (other than during open enrollment period) unless you experience a life qualifying event that would allow you the opportunity to enroll, make changes or opt out of coverage. If you do not require coverage, you must “opt out” of the plan by completing the necessary waiver form and submitting proof of other insurance coverage.

Opting Out

You may opt-out of enrollment in the Welfare Fund and its benefits if you are enrolled in another insurance plan. To opt out, provide the enclosed Enrollment Waiver, signed and notarized, along with proof of other insurance coverage, to your center bookkeeper for processing. Your disenrollment from the Fund and its benefits will be effective November 30, 2016, provided that the Welfare Fund receives the Enrollment Waiver and required proof of other coverage within the required deadline.
