At theUniversity of Pennsylvania Health System (UPHS) we are committed to providingaffordable health care benefits for all employees and their eligible dependents. One way to ensure we effectively spend our benefits dollars and provide anequal level of benefit to all employees is to verify that we are only payingthe expenses of eligible dependents as specified in the UPHS Summary PlanDescription.
UPHS has decided to partner with AutomaticData Processing, Inc. (ADP) to conduct a Dependent EligibilityAudit.
ADP will work as a third-party contractor to verify theeligibility of all dependents covered under a UPHS Health plan. The auditis scheduled to occur from November 1, 2013 to December 31, 2013. In a coupleof weeks, ADP will directly correspond with those employees who are currentlycovering dependents on a UPHS Health plan requesting the documentationnecessary to verify eligibility of covered dependents.
If you are not covering a dependent on a UPHS Healthplan no action is required.
If you have anyquestions about this announcement or requirements for eligible dependents,please contact the Dependent Verification Services Center beginning November 1,at 1.800.847.8531.
Thank you – the UPHS Benefits Department
