Remove a Member from the Medical Insurance Plan (MIP)


Summary: This checklist provides information to remove a member from the Medical Insurance Plan (MIP).

Reasons to Remove:

A covered family member should be removed from the Medical Insurance Plan (MIP) because of these reasons:

  • Child attaining age 26
  • Divorce
  • Dissolution of domestic partnership
  • Death of eligible family member
  • Voluntary removal in MIP enrollment
Factors to Be Noted: 
  • HR automatically ends MIP coverage for a covered child on the last day of the month of the child's 26th birthday. Special provisions may apply if the child is handicapped. For this, the child has to be evaluated by the medical insurance administrator at the time the child reaches the age of 25. Staff will need to Write to HR several weeks prior to the child's 25th birthday to obtain the appropriate underwriting forms that need to be completed by the child’s physician.
  • Submitting MIP claims for a non-eligible family member for medical plans is fraudulent. The Bank Group pursues such cases rigorously. Consequences of such an activity include loss of MIP coverage for you in perpetuity, financial restitution of the fraudulent claims, and even referral to the criminal justice authorities in your jurisdiction.
