You have the same health care benefits options, coverage levels, coinsurance and deductibles as existing employees; however, there are differences in your eligibility, when you enroll and how the wellbeing incentives work during your first plan year with Children’s Mercy.


  • You become eligible for benefits the first day of the month following 30 days of employment.


  • If you are a full-time, weekend option or part-time benefits-eligible employee, you must complete the enrollment process within 30 days of becoming eligible for coverage — even if you want to decline coverage.
  • If you are a part-time employee regularly scheduled to work between 32 and 47 hours each pay period, you must complete the enrollment process within 30 days to purchase medical, dental and/or vision coverage at full cost. If you want to decline coverage, you do not need to complete the enrollment process.
  • If you would like to claim a dependent under the Children’s Mercy benefit plans, you must provide proof of dependent eligibility within 30 days of the date you request coverage, stating he or she meets eligibility requirements.
