If you have experienced a triggering event, we will need a letter from you that describes the triggering event along with your application and documentation supporting your triggering event. Please submit your letter and documentation (copies only) along with your application and first months premium. If we do not receive a letter within 10 calendar days, the application will be canceled. Applicant may reapply and submit the letter regarding the triggering event, but he/she must do so within the 60-day special enrollment period
By submitting a signed application, letter, and documentation, you are confirming that a triggering event occurred. It is important that we receive your letter and documentation because we will rely on them to establish that you are eligible to enroll during a special enrollment period. If we determine that the triggering event did not occur, we may take legal action, [to ask you to pay for medical services rendered?] including but not limited to, canceling your coverage retroactively.
