Employees have 30 days from the date of a qualifying life event or 30 days after their hire date to enroll or make changes to their health, dental, vision, and reimbursement accounts.
Your child does not have to meet IRS definitions of a dependent to be eligible for coverage for medical, dental and vision benefits. Because of national health care reform, Duke offers coverage for children under age 26 for medical, dental and vision benefits regardless of their student status or their marital status. If your covered child lives outside your home, consider which plans offer coverage in that area.
Health Management Programs
Duke supports you and your family in practicing prevention through a broad range of health management programs that emphasize a proactive approach to improving health and preventing disease before it happens.
