Public Act 95-0958 provides for the extension of health, dental, vision and prescription coverage for three new categories of dependents, referred to as 'Adult Children', who may or may not have previously had coverage under the State of Illinois Group Insurance Program. These new categories are in addition to the current dependent categories of Student, Handicapped and Other. Adult children added under these new categories are not eligible for life insurance coverage.
An information packet is available for members interested in enrolling their adult child. The Special Enrollment Period- Eligibility Certification Statement form is available for the enrollment period which begins May 1, 2009, and runs through July 31, 2009.
