Benefit Changes After Loss of Other Coverage

Losing other insurance coverage may allow you to make changes to your Northwestern University benefits.

Change your health insurance enrollment

If you lose eligibility for another insurance plan, you may elect health, dental, and vision benefits via myHR within 31 days of the loss of coverage. Include a certificate of credible coverage from your previous insurer showing the last date of insurance or a letter from the employer on company letterhead stating when your coverage will end.

Insurance premiums are not prorated. Regardless of the date your other coverage ended, you are financially responsible for the entire month of insurance premiums. These may be retroactively deducted from future paychecks.
