Coverage begins on day 43 from your date of employment or eligibility unless you have a break in service (see below). If you are not actively at work on the day you complete the waiting period, your coverage under the Health, Dental, and Vision Care plans begins on the day you return to work. This exception does not apply if the reason you are not at work is due to a medical condition. Also, your dependent's coverage cannot begin before your coverage begins.
Break in Service
If you incur a break in service of any number of days before you satisfy the 42-day waiting period, you will need to satisfy a new waiting period before coverage takes effect. If you've already satisfied the 42-day waiting period and you incur a break in service of more than 28 days, you will need to satisfy a new waiting period.
