How Easy Is It To Adjust a Group Health Insurance Policy?There are two options for adjusting a group health plan. These include;
During open enrollment – This is a special period when employees can make changes to their health insurance plans. It’s usually between Nov. 1 to Dec 15 every year in Oregon.
During special enrollment – Outside of open enrollment, employees can adjust their plans only if they have a qualifying event that triggers a special open enrollment (SEP) window. Having a child, getting married, losing health insurance or updates to the place of residence are common examples of qualifying life events.
With the coronavirus pandemic at hand, an employer may also amend their health plan under the CARES Act provisions to allow employees to make a mid-year change without a qualifying reason.
