How can I get my address changed with the insurance providers?
You must complete an address change with Delaware County in order for the change to be processed to the carriers. Once it is received, a transmittal will go over to each applicable insurance provider.
I had a baby. What do I need to do?
You must log into Employee Navigator and add your new dependent to any applicable plans within 30 days after the date of birth in order for the child to be covered under your plan. If the addition is not made within the required time frame, you may add a dependent to your plan during open enrollment, effective the first of the following calendar year.
I got married. What do I need to do?
You must log into Employee Navigator and add your new spouse within 30 days after the date of the marriage in order for your spouse to have coverage under your plan. A copy of the marriage license is required and needs to be submitted to the Benefits Department in Human Resources as soon as available. No coverage will be added until both steps are completed. If the addition is not made within the required time frame, you may add your spouse to your plan during open enrollment, effective the first of the following calendar year.
I got divorced. What do I need to do?
You must log into Employee Navigator and remove your spouse within 30 days after the date the divorce is final. A copy of the divorce decree is required and needs to be submitted to the Benefits Department in Human Resources as soon as available.
When can I make changes to my plan/s?
The open enrollment process happens towards the end of each calendar year. Changes go into effect the first of the following year.
Outside of the open enrollment period, changes are allowed due only to qualifying events or major life events; marriage, birth of a child, divorce, loss of other coverage, etc. Changes must be made through the Employee Navigator portal within 30 days of the qualifying event and the applicable documentation will be required.
My spouse and I are separated and I would like to remove him/her from my insurance. What do I need to do?
You must be legally divorced in order to remove a spouse from your plan mid-year. The qualifying event, completion of the necessary entry into Employee Navigator and required documentation must be submitted within 30 days of the event.
During open enrollment, you may make changes to your plan without a qualifying event or the requirement of documentation.
My son/daughter is graduating this year. When will his/her coverage terminate?
Dependent children are covered under our plan/s until the last day of the month in which they turn 26 years of age. There is no educational requirement in place.
Who is my prescription provider?
Do I have to use the mail order prescription plan?
The mail order plan is setup for maintenance medications so that you can get a 90 day supply with each refill. Certain maintenance medications are required to be filled using the mail order program. You may fill your prescription at the pharmacy two times and then you will be notified that you must utilize the mail order prescription plan for further refills.
If you are currently on a maintenance medication, you can fill a three-month supply of long-term medicine through home delivery or at select pharmacies.
Getting a single three-month supply saves you money over three one-month supplies. Plus, you’ll make fewer trips to the pharmacy and you’ll be less likely to miss a dose since you won’t have to refill as often.
I don’t have a dental and/or vision card.
There are no cards issued for Delaware County’s dental or vision plan/s. When visiting your provider, you will need to tell them your coverage is with Delta Dental of Ohio for dental coverage and/or VSP for vision coverage. They will access your coverage by using that information and your social security number.
Do we have an EAP (Employee Assistance Plan)?
Yes. We have benefits available to us through ComPysch Guidance Resources. Employees and family members are eligible for this program simply by calling them at 877-327.4452.
Do we have a Wellness Program?

The program allows you to complete activities throughout the year for wellness related services and activities. Once you have completed the program, you will be eligible for an incentive. Spouses also under the medical plan have the same requirements and benefit available.
After termination of employment, when does my coverage end?
Benefits extend to midnight of the last day of the month in which your employment terminated. Cobra coverage will be offered to you, at your own cost, for any plan that you currently have, via U.S. mail.

Yes. A medical flexible spending account and a dependent care flexible spending account are available for you to enroll during the open enrollment period each calendar year.
