To ensure that only eligible dependents are covered under the Local Government Health Plan (LGHP), the Illinois Department of Central Management Services has retained the services of HMS Employer Solutions (HMS), an independent firm, to conduct a Dependent Eligibility Verification Audit.
By law, the State's plans, including LGHP, can only cover eligible members and dependents. While most dependents are eligible, some dependents in the plan may no longer meet the eligibility guidelines.
HMS is mailing a letter
to each LGHP member who has a dependent enrolled. The letter will detail the steps and documentation required to keep your dependents covered. The signed letter and all required documentation must be submitted directly to HMS by the due date indicated on the letter.
In an effort to assist in the audit process, a Frequently Asked Questions document
will be included in the mailing. HMS has developed a secure website at www.AuditOS.com
which is available to all members who are included in this audit. By registering on this website, you will find more details regarding this audit as well as assistance in locating and submitting your documentation.
When you receive any correspondence from HMS Employer Solutions, please read it carefully as there are specific due dates when certain information needs to be submitted. Failure to follow the instructions could result in loss of coverage for your dependents.
