Adding a Newborn to your Existing State Employee Health Plan Coverage

Employee/Spouse, Employee/Children, Employee/Family or Single coverage administratively provides benefits for a newborn child for first 31 days (beginning as of the date of birth). However, NO benefits will be available beyond that time unless the status of the employee’s coverage is changed to include the newborn. All mid-year membership change requests for SEHP members must be submitted through their member portal and the appropriate documentation uploaded within 31 days of the birth.
