In addition to enrolling yourself in Piedmont’s benefit plans, you also may choose to cover your eligible dependents. Eligible dependents include:
- Your spouse/domestic partner
- Your children under age 26 (includes your or your spouse/domestic partner’s natural children, legally‑adopted children, legal wards and stepchildren)
To contain health benefit costs for our employees and all eligible dependents, when you enroll your dependents in Piedmont’s medical plan for the first time, you will be required by an independent verifier (Aon Hewitt) to provide documentation of your dependents’ eligibility. If you do not respond to the request, or if a dependent is determined ineligible for such coverage, then coverage will end on the last day of the month of cancellation and such dependent will be ineligible for COBRA coverage. If you are enrolling new dependents in medical coverage for the first time, please watch for a mailing from the Dependent Verification Center in early 2018 and be sure to respond timely.
If your spouse/domestic partner has medical coverage available through his/her employer, he/she is not eligible to enroll in Piedmont’s medical coverage. Domestic partner coverage is available for medical, dental and vision benefits. You will be required to complete a Domestic Partner Affidavit, and you will be taxed on the full cost of the benefit for your domestic partner.
When you enroll your dependents in our benefit programs, you will be required by an independent verifier to provide documentation of your dependents’ eligibility.
Your spouse/domestic partner is eligible for coverage under the Piedmont benefit plans if they are:
- covered by Medicaid
- covered by Medicare
- covered by Retiree Medical
- employed by a company that doesn’t subsidize the cost of medical insurance
Piedmont benefits may be considered secondary. Please refer to your Summary Plan Description to determine which plan is primary.
