Family Member Eligibility Verification Ends May 17

The University of California is requiring all faculty, staff and retirees who have enrolled family members in their medical, dental and/or vision insurance plan to provide documents to verify their family members' eligibility for coverage. The May 17 deadline to provide documents to verify your family members’ eligibility for UC-sponsored health benefits is quickly approaching.

To ensure you meet the deadline, please consider the following recommendations:

  • Fax your required documents to Secova, the vendor administering the verification project on behalf of UC, at 866-412-0214


If you have family members enrolled in UC benefits, you must respond to the mailing from Secova by May 17, 2012, even if you provided the same information to UC at some time in the past. Those who do not respond risk being de-enrolled from all UC benefits along with de-enrollment of their family members. This includes medical, dental, vision, legal, supplemental life insurance, supplemental disability and accidental death and dismemberment.

For more information about the verification project, read the Frequently Asked Questions or contact Secova at 877-632-8126 (toll-free). Representatives are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Your call is confidential, and service is available in multiple languages.

Employees who did not receive a verification packet and enrolled their first family member during the month of February 2012 should call Secova to see if they must participate in the verification process at this time. If your name is not in the Secova database, then you are not included in this phase of the review.

More information about the Family Member Eligibility Verification project is available on the At Your Service website in Related Information.
