Any Other pointers, you can give me?

• Use black or blue ink and print clearly and legibly.
• Include your Small Group number at the top of the application.
• Make sure all required areas of the form are completed.
• If an HMO plan is selected, a primary medical group (PMG) or independent practice association (IPA) and office number are required.
• If Dental Net is selected, a dental office and office number must be selected.
• All information in section 3 must be completed.
• Social Security or ID number(s) are required.
• The employee must either enroll or decline coverage for all eligible dependents.
• Information on previous coverage is critical; be sure to submit proof of prior coverage (if applicable) and provide a copy of a Medicare ID card (if applicable).
• The last page of the application must be signed and dated by the employee.
• Employees who request life insurance must name a beneficiary.
• Incomplete applications may be returned, which will delay the coverage effective date.
