Agencies that were granted an exception are now being instructed to provide notification to employees that the period is ending. Notification letters should be provided to the parents of minor children, and the adult children of domestic partners living overseas. The notice is to include information on the date of termination, September 30, 2018, and that children are eligible for a 31-day extension of coverage. Children will also have the right to convert to an individual plan offered by the carrier, or elect coverage under the Temporary Continuation of Coverage (TCC) program. The elections children make under TCC can be carried for up to 36 months from the date coverage ended under the FEHB program. Unlike FEHB, there is no extension of coverage or right to convert to an individual policy under FEDVIP. Any children that utilized the exception period to gain coverage will lose FEDVIP coverage effective September 30, 2018.
