Do You Need to Use Services Immediately?
Your health benefit enrollment forms confirm the effective date for your coverage. However, it may take up to 60 days after you enroll before the insurance companies show a record of your enrollment. Be sure to keep a copy of your official enrollment forms mailed out to your attention after the Benefits Officer has signed. Verify benefit premium deductions on your pay warrant stub to ensure your enrollment has processed completely. The presence of a premium deduction on your pay warrant stub will confirm that premium payment has been made to the insurance carrier.
If you know at the time of enrollment that you will need to use services immediately after your new coverage takes effect, please inform the Benefits Office at the time of enrollment. If you need to use the services prior to your insurance carrier having a record of your enrollment, please contact the Office of Human Resources – Benefits at 916-278-6213.
