Have you heard the news? L.A. County employees must provide proof their dependents are eligible for medical and dental coverage by July 15, 2015.
Starting this month, official L.A. County packets containing a verification letter will begin arriving in the mail. The verification letter will indicate the type of documentation required to ensure your dependents continue receiving their coverage.
Most employees will need to provide a marriage or birth certificate even though that documentation may already be on file. You will be able to submit those documents by mail, fax, or by uploading via the web or a smartphone to ensure coverage.
You’ve fought hard and have earned your benefits, don’t let July 15th pass you by leaving your dependents without coverage. Look out for your County verification letter and packet in the mail!
