Dear Incoming House Officers:
You legally have to complete these forms within ten days of your start date or you risk being ineligible to enroll until the next open enrollment period. We are asking that you complete and submit these forms ASAP to ensure timely processing of your benefits. The only exceptions are qualifying events such as marriage/divorce, birth/adoption, etc.,.
Please review the specific information application forms associated with each benefit. Enrollment for Health and Vision insurance is web-based and handled through the Human Resources Department. Dental, Disability and Life insurance are handled by the GME office. The forms may be completed on-line, but will need to be printed out for signature and submission. Once you have reviewed and completed each benefit form please print out the GME insurance plan checklist and indicate exactly what insurances you are applying for. Send this sheet with the appropriate application forms (and copies of marriage certificates and/or birth certificates for any/all dependents you are covering), to GME.
