When Does Coverage End?
If you make changes to your plan selections during Open Enrollment, the health plan changes become effective at the beginning of the pay period that includes January 1st of the next year.
Dependent coverage ends when your coverage ends, or on the date the dependent becomes ineligible (divorce, loss of eligibility as a dependent child, etc.), whichever occurs first.
If your dependent becomes ineligible, you must complete a County of Ventura Enrollment & Change Form and cancel coverage for the dependent within 31 days of the date your dependent becomes ineligible. The completed form must be submitted to CEO/Human Resources/Benefits within 31 days of the event.
If you are terminating or retiring or if you lose coverage due to a reduction of standard hours, you and any enrolled dependents are covered for a full pay period after the end of the pay period in which your paycheck includes a premium deduction.
