Enroll or Add Dependent on AMIP - For Active Staff

Summary

The Medical Insurance Plan (MIP) provides worldwide comprehensive health, dental, and prescription drug insurance to eligible staff and retirees, and their eligible family members.

Attention:

An individual may be covered only once, either as an active staff member or an eligible family member on another staff member's Active MIP (AMIP), Retiree MIP, Medical Benefits Plan (MBP), or Retiree MBP coverage.

  • Eligibility
  • Enroll yourself and eligible family members for medical plans into AMIP within 60 days of entry-on-duty
  • Enroll eligible family members for medical plans into AMIP within 60 days of a life event
  • Enroll eligible family members for AMIP after the initial 60 days from EOD due to loss of other medical insurance coverage outside the Bank Group
  • Enroll eligible family members for medical plans into AMIP during the annual open enrollment period

MIP is not mandatory for staff. There is a default enrollment of Individual/Option B for staff who do not submit enrollment forms, but staff can waive the enrollment.

Eligibility

AMIP is available to active staff appointed to a HQ position as:

  • President.
  • Executive Director (ED), alternate ED, senior advisor to an ED, or advisor to an ED.
  • Regular, open, term, or extended term consultant (ETC). ETCs are eligible only for Option B.

An active staff member's family members and registered domestic partners, who are eligible for medical plans include:

  • Legal spouse or registered domestic partner.
  • Biological or legally adopted children under age 26 of the staff member, spouse, or domestic partner registered with the World Bank Group. This includes a step child. Eligibility for dependency allowance for children per Staff Rule 06.02 differs from eligibility for AMIP coverage.
  • Dependent children under age 25 years. This also includes older children who meet the criteria of disability or handicap as determined and approved by the medical insurance administrator. They should also have met the dependency criteria under Staff Rule 06.02 at the onset of the disability or handicap. The child must also continue to meet the dependency criteria under Staff Rule 06.02.
  • Grandchildren, if they are family members for medical plans of active staff member's dependent child per Staff Rule 06.02. This applies only for the duration the child—the parent of the grandchild—meets the criteria of a dependent child under Staff Rule 06.02.
  • Grandchildren born to handicapped or disabled children of a staff member or his/her spouse or registered domestic partner. They will be eligible for coverage for the period during which the parent of the grandchild meets the criteria of a handicapped child under Staff Rule 06.02. If the parent of the grandchild continues to meet the criteria of a handicapped child up to the grandchild’s 26th birthday, the grandchild will no longer be eligible for coverage as of the last day of the month in which s/he reaches age 26.

 

Enroll yourself and eligible family members for medical plans into AMIP within 60 days of entry-on-duty

Eligible staff and their family members, eligible for the medical plans, may join the AMIP without providing evidence of good health, if they apply within 60 days of the staff member’s initial entry-on-duty (EOD) date.

Note:

Staff may enroll or add eligible family members, who might have lost medical coverage due to a qualifying change in employment. This includes:

  • Termination of employment
  • Change in work shift
  • Change in work site
  • Reduction in hours of employment
  • Commencement of unpaid leave of absence
  • Death of spouse or registered domestic partner
  • Divorce/legal separation
  • Loss of entitlement to Medicare or Medicaid without medical underwriting.


You must apply for and provide required documentation within 60 days of the loss of other coverage resulting from one of these events.
