Do I need to add my dependent's information if I'm declining coverage?
You'll need to enter your dependent's information during initial or open enrollment even if you're declining coverage for them. In some cases, if your marital status is "married" but no dependent information is provided, the carrier may reach out to receive the dependents' information before processing your enrollment. Additionally, entering this information will save you time if you choose to enroll your dependents at a later date (i.e., for a qualifying life event).
Thank you for the feedback!
