To enroll a new group into an OBM plan, the following guidelines must be met:
- Effective dates of coverage can only be the first of each month.
- Renewal dates will always be the first of the month.
- Groups enrolling in Contributory plans must have at least 75% of the active eligible employees enrolled, excluding those waived with spousal coverage.
- Groups enrolling in the voluntary plan must have at least 2 people enrolling to be eligible for coverage.
- The employer must contribute at least 50% towards the employee's premium for Contributory plans and no more than 49% for the Voluntary plan.
- Groups whose prior plan did not include comparable dental coverage are subject to waiting periods.
