How Do I Elect Continuation Coverage?

If you have a qualifying event, we will re-notify you of your continuation rights. At that time, you will have at least 60 days to decide whether you want to continue your health coverage through the District’s plan. This election period will end 60 days from the later of the following two dates:

  • The date coverage would otherwise terminate.
  • The date the District notifies you of your continuation rights.

For families that lose coverage, each family member can separately elect continuation coverage. However, unless otherwise specified in the election, an employee's election to continue coverage will be deemed to include an election of continuation for the employee's spouse and dependent children. Similarly, a spouse's election to continue coverage will be deemed to include an election of continuation for any dependent child covered by the plan. An election on behalf of a family member is binding on the family member.

Although an employee and spouse can continue coverage on behalf of other family members, they cannot decline coverage on behalf of other family members. For example, if an employee declines continuation coverage, the spouse or dependent child can elect to continue their coverage.
