Effective October 1, 2011, if an active eligible employee requests a termination of coverage for them self, a spouse, a domestic partner, or a child, coverage ends on the last day of the month that eligibility is lost. Requests for coverage termination must be made consistent with a Qualified Status Change as defined by 111-040-0040.
Retroactive termination of coverage may be made in the event of a delay in the Entities reconciliation process and shall generally be within 14 days of receiving notification from the employee of the Qualified Status Change event and requested benefit changes.
Effective October 1, 2011, benefit coverage termination that is considered by OEBB to be intentional misrepresentation may be rescinded in compliance with the law. If this occurs, OEBB shall give the affected individual 30 days notice of the rescission of benefit coverage and an opportunity to appeal before the rescission takes effect.
Benefit coverage for active eligible employees ends on the last day of the month that they retire, unless otherwise determined in a collective bargaining agreement or documented Entity policy in effect on June 30, 2008. Benefit coverage may be continued based on the requirements and limitations in OARs 111-050-0001 through 111-050-0050.
