Will my coverage continue while I take Family and Medical Leave?

Yes, you may choose to continue your and your spouse’s coverage during a Family and Medical Leave.

If you choose to continue the coverage during the leave, the required contributions must be paid to your Employer, any changes in benefits that occur during the continuation period will apply on the effective date of the change, any Active Work or hospital confinement period will be waived, and the continuation during the Family and Medical Leave will run concurrently with a continuation during any other leave of absence.

If you choose not to continue your coverage, coverage will resume without your providing Evidence of Insurability if you return to work immediately after the Leave ends.

Family and Medical Leave means a leave of absence as defined by the Family and Medical Leave Act of 1993 or any state-mandated family and medical leave act or law.
