When Medical Coverage Begins and Ends

When Coverage Begins

When you first join the company, your medical coverage begins on the first of the month after you have two continuous months of service with the company, provided you have enrolled within 31 days of your eligibility period.

When Coverage Ends

Generally, medical coverage under A. H. Belo’s plan for you and your enrolled dependents ends when you:
No longer meet the eligibility requirements described in Eligibility and Participation section (see Who Is Eligible)
Terminate employment with A. H. Belo (effective at the end of the month you terminate)

Die
Coverage also ends if the plan is terminated, your employer stops participating in the plan or the plan is amended to terminate coverage for a group or class of individuals that includes you.
