Your natural Child will be eligible for coverage on the date of birth. If you adopt a Child, have a Child placed with you for adoption, or acquire a stepchild through marriage, he or she will be eligible for coverage on the date of placement or date of marriage, as long as you are responsible for healthcare coverage and your Child meets the Plan’s definition of a Dependent Child.
You must enroll your Child for coverage before the Fund pays any benefits for that Child. To enroll your Child for coverage, provide the required documentation to the Fund Office as soon as it is available. See the Enrollment Procedures section for more details.
