Code of the District of Columbia

§ 1–622.06. Automatic coverage; description of benefits.

(a) Except as provided in subsection (b) of this section, an employee is automatically insured on the date the employee becomes eligible for insurance. Each policy purchased by the Mayor under § 1-622.05 shall provide for this automatic coverage.

If notice is received after the employee has become insured, the insurance will end at the end of the pay period in which the notice was received.

(c) The Mayor shall make available to each insured employee or annuitant a written statement or summary of:

(1) The benefits to which the employee, annuitant, or member of the family of the employee or annuitant are entitled;

(2) The procedures for obtaining benefits; and

(3) The principal provisions of the policy in effect.
