If you have or adopt a child
Supplemental Health (including Out-of-country Emergency Medical)
You must switch from single to family coverage, unless your child is covered under your spouse's group health plan.
If your child is covered under your spouse's group health plan: he/she may be added to your plan upon loss of coverage under your spouse's group health plan. Written proof of this loss of coverage will be required.
If you already have family coverage under the McGill Supplemental Health Plan, the child will be added at no additional cost.
You may switch from single to family coverage within:
- 60 days of the event,
- 60 days immediately following the child's third birthday.
If you miss the 60-day window, your child will be registered for coverage under the McGill Dental Plan, effective January 1st of the following year.
When your child is added, either within the 60 day window or January 1st of the following year: if you already have family coverage, your child will be added at no additional cost.
Basic Life Insurance / Optional Life Insurance
Your coverage will remain unchanged.
Note: We recommend that you review your beneficiaries and the amount of Optional Life Insurance you require.
