1VAC55-20-250. Enrollment.

The local employer is responsible for providing local employees with enrollment forms for participation in the health benefits program. Such forms shall be provided to the local employer by the department or its designee. It is the responsibility of the local employer to provide information to local employees concerning the benefits offered in each of the plans comprising the health benefits program at such time and in such manner that it can be expected that the local employee can make an informed decision regarding the types of coverage that are being offered.

The local employer is responsible for ensuring that enrollment forms for participation made by local employees are fully completed on a timely basis, signed and certified. No later than 30 days prior to the effective date of coverage, the local employer shall forward the enrollment forms to the department or its designee, as may be appropriate. The department shall be responsible for notifying the local employer as to the location and manner of delivery of all such local employee enrollment forms. Further, the local employer shall be responsible for reporting any changes in benefit coverage in a manner similar to the reporting of an initial application with the department having the ability to waive the 30-day notice requirement.
