You may enroll in this plan as a new hire during your first 21 calendar days of employment without having to provide evidence of medical insurability. If you choose to enroll at a later date, you must provide evidence of medical insurability.

When does coverage begin?

The GIC will determine the effective date if MetLife approves your application.
