Retirees who would like to request a medical plan change outside of Open Enrollment can only do so if they experience a Qualifying Life Event (examples - marriage, death, birth/adoption, gain/loss coverage elsewhere, change in employment, etc.). The retiree must submit the 2022 Enrollment Form to Mecklenburg County within 31 days of the event date AND include a document to verify the event (certificate, letter from employer, letter from other insurance carrier, etc.).
Retirees who are covering dependents under the County’s Health Benefit Plan will be asked to provide verification documentation to ensure that people being covered are eligible. Learn more about this
