When do I need to add my newborn or adopted child to my health plan?

To make sure your claims are properly processed and the child is added to your health plan, you need to add the dependent child within 60 days of the child's birth, adoption or placement for adoption.

If you are covered under Group Plans, please contact your benefits administrator at your employer to add your newborn or adopted child. Click here for instructions if you are the benefits administrator for your Group Plan coverage.

If you are covered under Personal Plans, please contact us.
