EUTF sent a confusing letter to health plan participants. While seeking to verify dependent eligibility for coverage, a return form entitled “Dependent Benefit Coverage” was included. If you sign the form, it will remove any dependent from coverage, even those that are eligible.
The form should be signed only if you have dependents that do not meet the criteria outlined in “Definition of Eligible Dependents”. This must be done by October 23. These dependents identified will lose coverage as of October 31, 2009.
If your dependents meet the eligibility requirements, you will receive a letter in November that requests documentation to confirm eligibility.
Questions regarding dependents should be made to the Secova Call Center (808) 566-0868. This is the firm hired by the EUTF to verify dependents.
