IMPORTANT NOTICE: Health Plan Benefits Dependent Eligibility Audit

At the University of Pennsylvania Health System (UPHS) we are committed to providing affordable health care benefits for all employees and their eligible dependents. One way to ensure we effectively spend our benefits dollars and provide an equal level of benefit to all employees is to verify that we are only paying the expenses of eligible dependents as specified in the UPHS Summary Plan Description.

UPHS has decided to partner with Automatic Data Processing, Inc. (ADP) to conduct a Dependent Eligibility Audit.

ADP will work as a third-party contractor to verify the eligibility of all dependents covered under a UPHS Health plan. The audit is scheduled to occur from November 1, to December 31, 2013. In a couple of weeks, ADP will directly correspond with those employees who are currently covering dependents on a UPHS Health plan requesting the documentation necessary to verify eligibility of covered dependents.

If you are not covering a dependent on a UPHS Health plan no action is required.
