  Overview   What is dependent eligibility verification? 

Like many institutions, the University of Missouri System (UM System) incorporated dependent eligibility verification as part of an overall strategy aimed at controlling the rising cost of health care and helping us remain good stewards of the financial resources we use to provide health care coverage.

In February of 2017, UM System coordinated with Conduent HR Services (Conduent, formerly Xerox HR Services) to conduct a dependent eligibility verification; this process asked employees to provide proof that their dependents remained eligible for coverage under their insurance plans. Employees who covered dependents on their UM-sponsored medical, dental, or vision insurance completed the verification process. Retirees and those who did not cover dependents on their UM-sponsored insurance were not asked to complete the verification process.  

  Timeline   Verification process
