689 Wellness Program Named

Congratulations, you’ve got the power!

  • Eating fruit instead of candy.
  • Taking the stairs instead of the escalator or elevator.
  • Taking a deep breath when your stressed rather than bottling it up inside.
  • Getting a good night’s rest instead of staying up late to catch your favorite show.

FAQs

My spouse and I are legally separated. Can I remove my spouse from my coverage?

Your spouse’s coverage ends if you get divorced or if your marriage is annulled. If you are separated but still legally married, your spouse is still covered. You can remover him or her during the annual open enrollment.  Your domestic partner loses coverage when your relationship no longer meets the criteria for a domestic partner relationship.

If you and your spouse are divorced, you should notify the Health & Welfare Plan Office immediately. If you fail to remove your divorced spouse from the Plan, you could be liable for any expenses claimed by your former spouse after the date of the divorce. For more information, see the Life Events page.
