PW_B130970

When evidence of insurability is needed

What does evidence of insurability mean?
Evidence of insurability means a statement of medical history and related information, which we will use to determine whether an applicant will be approved for coverage.  
 
When is evidence of insurability required?
Evidence of insurability is needed:  
When an employee applies for contributory coverage (where the employee contributes toward the premium) more than 31 days after they first become eligible;
When an employee applies for contributory dependent coverage (where the employee contributes toward the premium) more than 31 days after their first dependent becomes eligible;
For insurance amounts in excess of the group’s guarantee issue limit; and
For any other reason in accordance with our current standard underwriting procedures and guidelines.
 
How to provide evidence of insurability
Depending on what enrollment forms the group uses, evidence of insurability questions may be a section of the employee application, or evidence of insurability may require a separate form. Use the forms we provided in the group administration kit, or go to Online Forms from the Answers@AnthemLife menu and select Employee Applications.
