Staff will lose coverage under the Continuation Medical Insurance Plan (CMIP) program after 36 months of enrollment. You may choose to enroll in a conversion plan.
Eligibility is automatic, and no medical underwriting is required.
Conversion plan coverage is significantly less than the coverage under MIP and conversion insurance is expensive as it assumes a high degree of medical risk. Premiums and plan availability differ depending on where the insured person lives.
Effective December 31, 2013, Aetna does not offer conversion plans because of the revised U.S. healthcare options.
Cigna offers two options:
- Conversion plan that includes global and U.S. coverage
- Conversion plan for only non-U.S. coverage
Both Cigna options are limited to two years.
