Congratulations! You’ve made a big step in your life by choosing a life partner. Now, it’s time to get all the things done that you made this step for. One of those things is taking care of the "in sickness and in health" component, and that involves changing your health care plan.
At S & S Insurance Services Inc., we want all new couples in Oklahoma City, OK to have an easy time changing their health insurance after they get married. It’s easier than you think!
Sixty Days Later
Getting married is considered a qualifying life event in Oklahoma, which means that you have a special circumstance that will allow you to get health care when you need it. You won’t have to wait for open enrollment periods.
After you get married, you have 60 days to change your health care plan. If you forget, you won’t be able to get health insurance until the open enrollment period begins.
During that 60 days after your wedding, you have options for health care coverage.
Health Care Options After Your Wedding
There are a number of ways you can change your health care after your wedding. You or your spouse can add each other to your employee health care plan, get a new plan for the both of you, or get individual health care plans.
If you or your spouse is being added to a work plan, talk to your human resources department or benefits organizer as soon as possible. Your company may or may not cover some of your spouse’s or dependent’s health care coverages. You’ll at least want to get a quote. More companies today are not extending work coverage at discounts to spouses.
