If you do not provide the required documentation, coverage will be terminated.
  • You can terminate your dependent coverage, but you will not be able to re-enroll the dependent until the next Open Enrollment provided you have maintained your enrollment in a School Board sponsored healthcare plan. You can add a dependent throughout the year if experiencing a qualifying change in status event.
