When you have a baby or adopt a child, you can make certain changes to your benefits without having to wait for the next Annual Enrollment.
You have 60 days following the birth or adoption of a child to make changes to certain benefits or you will have to wait until the next Annual Enrollment period. You are responsible for making the changes on the enrollment website. Your new coverage will be effective from the date of the birth or adoption.
