Current Members

Enrolling in coverage

Open enrollment, typically held in October of each year, is set aside for current members to change or adjust their health insurance coverage choices.  Watch for announcements about open enrollment in the fall.

Changing your coverage 

If you have experienced a life-changing (qualifying) event – a new child, divorce, marriage, etc. – you can adjust your health benefit options to reflect your current needs and status.  Complete an enrollment/change application and submit to your insurance coordinator or human resource generalist. After a marriage or divorce, the paperwork should be submitted within 35 calendar days. If you have a baby, or adopt a child, you have 60 calendar days unless adding additional dependents. Be sure to ask your insurance coordinator or human resource generalist for specifics.

Qualifying events might include:

            • Birth, adoption
            • Marriage
            • Loss of coverage
            • Gaining coverage
            • Ineligible dependents
            • Court orders
            • Medicare/Medicaid/KCHIP/CHIPR

Can't remember which plan you chose?

Simply log into the KHRIS employee self-service center, above, to see your current selection.
