Adding An Other Qualified Adult

Question: When can I add an OQA?

Answer: There is a six-month residency waiting period required before you can newly enroll an OQA to your coverage. You may add an OQA to your coverage only if you and your OQA continue to share the same primary residence and have done so for the previous 6 continuous months with no break in your shared residency. To enroll online, go to Self Service > Benefits on Wolverine Access. Select Initiate Life Events and follow the instructions. You must enroll your OQA within 30 days of when the residency requirement is met. If you fail to enroll within 30 days you must wait until the next Open Enrollment.
