UPDATES

Dependent Verification Process

The Dependent Verification Process (dependent audit) has begun for employees who added new dependents to their benefits coverage during the County’s recent Open Enrollment period.  The dependent audit is being conducted by ADP to validate that newly-added dependents meet the County’s benefits eligibility requirements and are therefore eligible to participate in the County’s benefit plans.  Letters were mailed to employees on June 27, 2016 requesting that they respond to the audit byWednesday, July 27, 2016.

The audit applies to employees who added new dependents to their health benefits.  Employees whose dependents had been previously approved as eligible for coverage AND who had medical, vision, and/or dental coverage during Plan Year 2015-2016 will not be re-audited.   

To avoid  having dependents dropped from coverage, employees should respond to the audit letter by taking three steps:

  1. Gather the documentation requested in the audit letter.
  2. Fax, mail, or upload the documentation to ADP using the Cover Sheet provided in the letter.
  3. Submit the documentation by the due date.

Failure to respond to the audit within the specified timeframe will result in dependents being dropped from coverage retroactively to July 1, 2016, and employees being financially responsible for claims paid for dependents during the period of ineligibility. Employees will not have the option to re-add their dependents to coverage until next year, July 1, 2017.

For questions regarding the Dependent Verification Process, contact the Maricopa County Employee Benefits Division at (602) 506-1010.  For questions regarding the status of an audit, contact the ADP Dependent Verification Service Center at (800) 847-8531.

Benefits and Wellness Orientation for Newly Benefits-Eligible Employees

In addition to the County’s New Employee Orientation (NEO) hosted by Employee Development, new hires and newly benefits-eligible employees have the opportunity to attend a presentation that features important Benefits and Wellness information.

The purpose of this monthly presentation IS NOT to replace the County’s NEO, but rather to accommodate the Courts and/or elected offices that typically conduct their own NEO. It starts at 9:30 am at the Administration Building 301 W. Jefferson St., in Test Rooms A & B.  For their convenience, employees will be able to complete a Biometric Screening and Saliva test onsite at the end of the presentation.

Click here for the complete 2016 Benefits and Wellness presentation schedule. Department Liaisons will need to submit a Benefits and Wellness Presentation Registration Request with the employee’s name, and department to enroll their new or newly benefits-eligible employee(s) in a Benefits and Wellness presentation. The registration request must be completed and sent to the Employee Benefits Division either via e-mail at benefitsservice@mail.maricopa.gov or via fax at 602-506-2354 NO LATER THAN NOON on the THURSDAY PRIOR to a scheduled Benefits and Wellness presentation.  The Benefits and Wellness  Registration Form is only to be used to register for the Benefits and Wellness presentation.  If the employee will be attending the regular County NEO, continue to use the current registration process.
