First off, congrats on your new addition! I know that this is always a really exciting time, so we definitely want to make sure that adding your child to insurance coverage goes as smoothly as possible.
1) You can explore the option of adding your child to your coverage by logging into your SimplyInsured account and going to "Dependent Coverage." You can can access this directly here:
2) Then choose your qualifying event to add a dependent:
3) Enter your child's personal information including name and date of birth. Note that you are unable to enroll a newborn before they are born since the insurance company requires a birthday.
- The application process will also require that you enter a social security number. If you don't have it yet, you can enter "123451234" into that field. Once you receive it, you can send it along to us and we will update the insurance company.
We know that this is probably a really busy time for you and as long as you complete the application within 30 days after your child's birth, the insurance company will retroactively cover any healthcare costs that should be covered under the policy. The insurance will be retroactive back to the date of birth.
