You must complete the "Employer information" section below

You will not be issued an individual policy with the premiums, or a portion thereof, paid or reimbursed by an employer unless you submit a signed affidavit from the employer certifying that the employer has not had a small group health benefit plan providing coverage to any employee in the past twelve (12) months. To see if this applies to you, please answer the following questions. If left blank, your enrollment form will not be processed until you provide the responses to the questions.

* 1. Will an employer of 100 or fewer eligible employees be paying for or reimbursing an employee through wage adjustment or a health reimbursement arrangement for any portion of the premium on the policy being applied for?

If you answered Yes, please continue to question 2. If you answered No, please continue.

* 2. Did the employer have a small group health benefit plan providing coverage to any employee in the twelve (12) months prior to the date of this request for enrollment?

If the answer to both questions 1 and 2 is Yes, you (the applicant) will not be issued an individual policy with the premiums, or portion thereof, paid or reimbursed by the employer. If the answer to question 1 is Yes and the answer to question 2 is No, you (the applicant) must submit a signed affidavit from your employer certifying that the employer has not had a small group health benefit plan providing coverage to any employee in the previous twelve (12) months. The Employer affidavit form to be completed by the employer is at the back of this enrollment form. The submission of this affidavit does not guarantee that the individual policy you are applying for will be issued by the carrier. If you answer Yes to both questions 1 and 2, you may apply for individual coverage if you pay the full premium yourself and are not reimbursed in any way by your employer.

Do you qualify for a special enrollment period?

In general, you can only change or apply for health care coverage during the yearly open enrollment period. But if you have a qualifying life event, you may be able to change or apply for coverage for a limited time before or after this event occurs. This is called a special enrollment period.

To qualify for a special enrollment period, you must:
  • Have a qualifying life event
  • Have proof of your life event
  • Apply within 60 days of your life event. For some qualifying life events, you can enroll before the date of your event.
Examples of these types of qualifying life events include:
  • Getting married
  • Having a baby
  • Losing coverage because you lost your job
The special enrollment period generally lasts 60 days from the date of your qualifying life event.
For example, if you have a baby on June 1, you have 60 days — or by July 30 — to apply for coverage.

What if my life event happens during open enrollment?

Even if your qualifying life event happens during open enrollment, you’ll still have a special enrollment period.

What if I know about my life event in advance?

If your qualifying life event is a loss of coverage that you know about in advance, you may be able to apply for new coverage ahead of time. In this case, you have 60 days before and 60 days after the event to apply.

For more information on qualifying life events and start dates, visit kp.org/specialenrollment.
