Yes. Each eligible person (retiree, spouse, or dependent) may opt out of coverage or drop coverage and return to the medical plan once after first becoming eligible. If you or your surviving spouse opts out of medical coverage, your dependents will not be eligible for coverage under the medical plan. However, you can enroll your dependents in the dental plan without enrolling yourself.
If you opt out of medical coverage and wish to return to the medical plan, you must provide documentation indicating that you were covered under another medical plan immediately prior to the date you want to be covered under this Plan.
