Summary of Benefits Coverage
What is the Summary of Benefits and Coverage?

Under the Affordable Care Act (ACA), health insurers and employer groups must provide a summary of benefits and coverage (SBC) to participants and beneficiaries (generally employees and dependents). SBCs must follow standards set forth by the federal agencies.  The SBC helps eligible employees and dependents understand their benefits and coverage by using simple language in a consistent format. The SBC includes brief summaries of:
Covered services
Examples of coverage
Appeals and grievance rights
Exceptions and limitations
Cost-sharing provisions, including any deductible, coinsurance and copayments
Continuation coverage
The SBC also contains a phone number to call for questions and the website address where the uniform glossary can be found.

Proof of Eligible Dependent Status
ACWA JPIA requires the District to guarantee every dependent enrolled in a medical plan is an eligible dependent. The District must show proof of eligibility for each dependent you enroll. Commonly submitted documents are marriage certificates (spouse); birth certificates (child) and court orders (child).

For every dependent you are enrolling, you must submit a copy of the verification document with your medical enrollment form. If you cannot locate the documents, request from the county registrar’s office for where each event occurred (marriage or birth).
