Choose Carefully

Federal regulations require that the NazFlex benefit choices you make during the annual open enrollment period be effective for the entire plan year, which is January 1 to December 31, unless you have a “qualified event,” which is defined as any of the following:

  • Marriage or divorce
  • Death of a spouse or dependent child
  • Birth or adoption of a child
  • A change in employment status from full-time to part-time or part-time to full-time by you, your spouse or eligible domestic partner
  • A child no longer qualifying as an eligible dependent
  • A change in eligibility for a domestic partner
  • A change in eligibility for a child (ren) of a domestic partner
  • Dependents loss of Medicaid/CHIP coverage because of ineligibility
  • An unpaid leave of absence for you or your spouse
  • A significant change in health coverage for you or your spouse or eligible domestic partner, attributable to your spouse's or domestic partner’s employment

You must request a change of enrollment within 30 days of the “qualified event” date.  However, you have 60 days from the date of the Medicaid/CHIP event to request enrollment under the Nazareth College plan.

Please note that any election change you request due to a "change in family status" must be consistent with the family status change that occurred.
