UC to Begin Reverifying Family Members Eligibility for Health Benefits This Spring

In April, Secova, working with UC Human Resources, will begin reaching out to certain employees and retirees to reverify the eligibility of some dependents for health and welfare benefits. If you are selected as part of this reverification process, Secova will request information verifying the current eligibility of your spouse or domestic partner, grandchildren or legal wards. It is important to follow all instructions carefully. Failure to respond to or comply with the family member eligibility verification notifications sent by Secova may result in the de-enrollment of your unverified dependents.
