If you are eligible for LAwell benefits, you can also cover:
or a Domestic Partner (DP)
and/or a Child:
Special Situation Child Rule: If your child is also a LAwell eligible City employee, he/she must enroll into his/her own LAwell coverage and cannot be covered as your dependent.
Your dependent child's coverage will end on the last day of the month in which your child turns age 26. A COBRA notice will be provided to your child within 45 days of coverage termination.
Disabled Child coverage: Children with disabilities can remain your covered dependent after turning age 26 only if your LAwell health plan has certified the dependents disability.
Grandchild coverage: Coverage for grandchildren will end when the parent child reaches age 19 or age 26 if a full-time student.
The following are examples of individuals who are not considered eligible dependents:
NOTE: If your eligible dependent becomes ineligible (Example: Divorce, loss of custody, etc), you must drop coverage for the ineligible dependent within 30 days of the date he or she loses eligibility.
