If you are a METRO employee and a participant in the Plan, but you leave your METRO employment, lose your eligibility for Plan coverage, and then return to work for METRO at a later date, you will be treated a s a new METRO employee.
You will be asked to complete enrollment forms. Before the end of your probation period, you will receive information from the Health & Welfare Plan about the benefit choices available to you. You must return those forms to the Health & Welfare Plan by the date indicated. Full-time employees who do not make a selection will automatically be enrolled for single coverage in the default HMO (Kaiser), and the Cigna Dental HMO.
