Dependent Eligibility Documentation Requirements

As part of the dependent eligibility verification process for the medical, dental and vision plans, you will be required to submit supporting documentation to prove your relationship to each dependent.

Watch your Parkland email address and mailbox at your home address for details on the two-step dependent eligibility verification process. Do not submit documentation until Impact Interactive sends you a verification request.

Step 1

Complete the online affidavit about your dependent relationships.

Step 2

Submit verification documents to confirm your responses.

If you don’t have Internet access, you can call the Eligibility Center at 866-691-6551 to provide your answers. Hours are Monday through Thursday, 7 a.m. to 6 p.m., and Friday, 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. Central time.

Pay attention to the deadline.

All communication will state the deadline for responding and the end date for dependent coverage.
