Learn more about the Dependent Audit process by reviewing the "Dependent Eligibility Audit"
Once you have enrolled in your benefits, you will receive an email with audit instructions from HMS to your work email address within 10 days from the date you enrolled. The email from HMS will ask you to provide documentation supporting eligibility for only new dependents you add to the 2016 plans. Examples of acceptable documentation include a marriage certificate, birth certificate, recent tax filings, etc. You'll find a complete list of acceptable documents here.
Reminder: Unverified dependents are dropped from coverage based on the requirements outlined in your letter from HMS.
