If your payment is not received by the due date, including the grace period, you may reinstate your coverage by using a late payment waiver. For Earned Eligibility, the Plan allows one late payment waiver per three-year waiver period. The first three-year waiver period begins on January 1, 2023 and is reset every three years thereafter.
The three-year reset period applies to all Participants and is not dependent on when you use a waiver. For example, if you use your one waiver in March 2024, you will again have a waiver available as of January 1, 2026. Senior Performer Dependents and Senior Performer Surviving Dependents are eligible for one late payment waiver per Benefit Period. Participants may use a late payment waiver up to the last day of the quarter for which the payment is due.
