Managing Status Changes
Remind workers to inform Concordia Plan Services in writing when status changes occur for workers or dependents. It is important that we receive changes such as addition or deletion of dependents (i.e., spouse, child) or a change of address, or termination of coverage, because benefits and participation may be affected.
- Fill out the Worker Change Report Form for terminations, transfers, hour changes, or salary changes (only for job title or hours changes); or
- Fill out the Request for Membership Change Form for changing dependents or marriage status; or
- Fill out the Change of Address Form for address changes.

Payments to all Plans are due through the end of the month in which the worker terminated.
CHP Termination Information
: If notice of a termination is not reported within 30 days of the event, the employer is required to pay the CHP contribution through the end of the month in which notice was provided. In the case of a transfer, failure to report within 30 days will result in the employer being billed for Concordia Health Plan (CHP) contributions for any interim period (the employment gap between employers) of two months or less. If the interim transfer period is more than two months, the employer will be billed through the end of the month in which the transfer was reported.
CRSP Reporting for Terminations:
If the terminated worker was participating in the CRSP, and the employer utilized the automatic method of contribution remittance, it is the employer's responsibility to notify EBSO about the change. The employer will need to adjust their Automatic Remittance Form
and return the paperwork.
Health Care Coverage Extensions
In order to obtain an extension of coverage, CPS must be notified in writing that you wish to pay on an individual basis within 21 days.
Workers: CHP Coverage may be extended up to 15 calendar months after termination on an individual basis.
Dependents: Dependent coverage may be extended up to six calendar months following the end of the calendar month in which the dependent is no longer an eligible dependent of the member.
Retirees: Retiring workers age 55 or older with more than five consecutive years of CHP participation (or 1 year of CHP participation with five years of RMS service credits if enrolled in the Concordia Retirement Plan, Concordia Disability and Survivor Plan, and the Concordia Retirement Savings Plan) immediately prior to retirement can continue in the CHP as retired members. If you do not meet the above criteria, you may extend CHP coverage up to 15 months on an individual basis.
Legally Separated or Divorced Spouses: Legally separated or divorced spouses from CHP members may extend coverage up to 12 calendar months, and may file for extended coverage for any dependents of the CHP member that are in your custody.
