application in case of changed coverage. The provisions of
§§ 20:06:40:24 and 20:06:40:25 apply if there is a change in coverage for
the dependent child and the following occur:
(1) Dependent child of a
participant or beneficiary is in a period of coverage under a health benefit
plan offered in connection with such a plan, pursuant to a medically necessary
leave of absence of the child;
(2) The manner in which the
participant or beneficiary is covered under the plan changes, whether through a
change in health insurance coverage or health insurance issuer, a change
between health insurance coverage and self-insured coverage, or otherwise; and
(3) The coverage as so
changed continues to provide coverage of beneficiaries as dependent children.
This section applies to coverage of
the child under the changed coverage for the remainder of the period of the
medically necessary leave of absence of the dependent child under the plan in
the same manner as it would have applied if the changed coverage had been the
36 SDR 96, effective December 9, 2009.
