Enrolling in Benefits After the Birth of a Child

Question: I am not enrolled in benefits. Can I enroll when I have my baby?

Answer: Yes. You may enroll in a health plan when you have your baby, provided you are in a benefit-eligible appointment. You have 30 days from the date of birth to enroll and add your new dependent to your benefits coverage. To enroll, go to Self Service > Benefits on Wolverine Access. Select Initiate Life Events and follow the instructions.
