How to Add a Family Member to Your Coverage

How to Add a Family Member to Your Coverage

The steps you take will depend on whether you purchased your insurance coverage directly from Blue Cross Blue Shield of Wyoming, through the Health Insurance Marketplace, or you receive coverage through your employer.

I purchased coverage directly from BCBSWY

To add a family member to your coverage, log in to YourWyoBlue.com and select the SHOP tab at the top of the page. In most cases, you have a set amount of time to do this:

Birth of a Child?

You have within 61 days of the newborn’s date of birth to add a newborn child to your coverage.

Adoption of a Child?

You have within 61 days of the earliest date of either the petition file date, or the child’s date of entry into your home, to add an adopted child to your coverage. Please note: The adoption or legal guardianship papers must be provided.

Getting Married?

You can add your new spouse to your coverage before or after getting married as long as it’s within 30 days after the date of marriage.

I purchased coverage through the Health Insurance Marketplace

Go to healthcare.gov  or call the Marketplace at 1-800-318-2596 to determine if you are eligible for a special enrollment period.

If you are eligible for a special enrollment period because you had a baby, adopted a child or got married, you have 60 days after the life event to add a family member to your coverage.

For more information about enrollment periods, please review your Benefit Booklet by logging in to your account at YourWyoBlue.com. 

I receive coverage through my employer
