The Kentucky Employees’ Health Plan
Dependent Eligibility Verification Program
As part of its commitment to control health care costs, the Commonwealth of Kentucky is taking steps to ensure that only eligible dependents are covered under the Kentucky Employees’ Health Plan (KEHP). Covering individuals who are not eligible raises the cost of health coverage, which is reflected in the premiums deducted from paychecks.
KEHP has retained Chapman Kelly as an independent firm to administer the Dependent Eligibility Verification Program. This program is intended to ensure that each dependent enrolled in the health plan is accurately listed and eligible for coverage. Frequently Asked Questions related to the audit can be found at www.mydependentcheck.com/KEHP.
The dependent eligibility verification program includes two phases.
1. The Amnesty Phase allows each enrolled employee or retiree the opportunity to carefully review the definitions of an eligible dependent and remove any dependent(s) that do not meet eligibility criteria. If you remove an ineligible dependent during the Amnesty Phase, there will be no repercussions from the Kentucky Employees’ Health Plan.
2. During the Verification Phase, documentation will be required to validate each enrolled dependent’s eligibility. You will need to provide copies of birth certificates, marriage licenses, adoption records, tax returns, etc. to Chapman Kelly for all enrolled dependents in KEHP. These records are verification of your dependent’s eligibility for coverage under KEHP’s eligibility guidelines.
If you are not enrolled in KEHP, or if you do not have family members enrolled in KEHP, you will not receive a letter regarding the dependent eligibility verification program.
