There are two main ways to do dependent verification:
1. A one-time, comprehensive dependent eligibility audit of enrolled dependents ensures that all dependents enrolled at the end of the audit are eligible.
2. Ongoing verification for new dependents confirms eligibility of new dependents at the point of enrollment, ensuring only eligible dependents can enroll in benefits coverage. Performing a comprehensive, one-time dependent eligibility audit followed by ongoing dependent verification is the best practice.
