Verification of Dependents for Benefits

Submitted by Robin Frazier, frazier.398@osu.edu

If you cover a spouse or dependent child on your medical plan, you will receive an annual request for information about any other medical coverage they may have. Your response is required, even if your dependent does not have other coverage. In instances where an individual is covered by more than one plan, you will be asked for additional information in order to determine which is the primary plan to ensure accurate claim payments. Trustmark Health Benefits will send this Request for Additional Coverage Information in February. Failure to provide the information by the requested due date will result in delays in claim payments.
