Benefit Coverage for Over-Age Students
It’s September, your college or university-bound dependent may still be eligible for benefit coverage under your plan if they are:
|•||Between the ages of 18 to 25 (depending on your plan)|
What you need to do
Confirm your over-age student’s status as a full-time student when you submit their claims. This is especially important for dependents that have just recently become over-age students or no longer qualify.
|•||Contact your benefits administrator right away once your dependent qualifies as an over-age student. Otherwise, their claims will be declined.|
|•||If your plan has Pay-Direct Drug, you can print an extra paper drug card that your over-age student can present at the pharmacy. Otherwise, simply indicate ‘full-time student’ whenever you submit a paper claim form for their drug claims.|
|•||The same is true for dental claims, otherwise their claims will not be covered.|
Confirmation of coverage
You will need your Plan Member ID (certificate number) as well as your policy number.
