Enrollment Instructions and Effective Dates

<- Section 1 

Section 3 -> 


Open Enrollment Period

During the FY 2013-2014 Open Enrollment Period (August 1 through August 31, 2013) you may newly enroll or make changes to eligible State of Michigan insurance plans described on this website.  You may also change your current enrollments to include eligible dependents.  Information about your eligibility, and the eligibility of your family members, is in Sections 10 and 11.

You must make your change(s) in your MI HR Self-Service Account no later than midnight on August 31, 2013.   

When you complete the enrollment process, you will be prompted to print or email a confirmation statement.  You must select either "Print" or "Email" and receive the "Your enrollment is complete" message to save your changes.  Changes will not be recorded if you exit the system before receiving this message.  This will be the only confirmation statement you will receive.  If you need assistance, please contact the MI HR Service Center toll free at 877-766-6447.

Your enrollments for FY 2013-2014 will go into effect on October 13, 2013.

Mid-Year Enrollments and Changes

If you are a newly hired eligible employee , you can enroll yourself and your eligible dependents within 31 days of your date of hire.  Your eligibility date is the first day of the biweekly pay period after you have commenced employment. Other eligibility requirements may apply to certain insurance plans.

If you wish to enroll a newly acquired dependent after your coverage becomes effective, you must notify the MI HR Service Center within 31 days of acquiring this new dependent. You will be required to complete the necessary forms and will also be required to provide proof of dependent eligibility, such as birth certificates, marriage certificates, etc.  See Section 13, Question # 2 for information on insurance effective dates. Review dependent eligibility guidelines for details on children ages 19 up to their 26 birthday, children who are adopted, or for whom there is joint custody.

If you do not enroll when newly hired, or you do not enroll your dependents at that time (or when newly acquired), you will be given other opportunities during future Open Enrollment Periods.

If you move to a new permanent residence outside of the service area of the HMO or DMO in which you are enrolled, you must transfer your enrollment to another available group insurance plan immediately.

Other mid-year changes are generally not allowed unless there has been a "family status change" as described in the Frequently Asked Questions section (13).
