Cancel Active Medical Insurance Plan, Continuation Medical Insurance Plan, or Retiree Medical Insurance Plan


A Medical Insurance Plan (MIP) member may choose to cancel Active Medical Insurance Plan (AMIP), Continuation Medical Insurance Plan (CMIP), or Retiree Medical Insurance Plan (RMIP) because of enrollment into other medical insurance plans or any other reason.


RMIP and CMIP cancellation is irrevocable.

AMIP can be reinstated without medical underwriting of the staff member or his/her spouse. It can be reinstated subject to loss of coverage due to:

  • Employment status change. This includes termination of employment, change in work shift, change in work site, reduction in hours of employment, or commencement of unpaid leave of absence.
  • Death of spouse or registered domestic partner
  • Divorce or legal separation
  • Loss of entitlement to Medicare or Medicaid

This checklist outlines the steps for cancelling AMIP, RMIP, and CMIP.
