University of Tennessee employees who are enrolled in the State Group
Insurance Program have until Friday, Sept. 4, to verify the eligibility
of dependents covered under your insurance.
If you fail to complete the verification by the deadline on Friday, your
dependents -- including spouses and children -- will lose health care
insurance. You will need legal documentation such as tax forms and birth
certificates to prove eligibility of dependents.
Enrollees in the insurance program should have received information in
the mail at your home address from Secova, a company hired by the State
of Tennessee to conduct the verification process.
If you are a supervisor, please download the flyer provided here and
post in the office and talk to your employees about this important
process. The flyer can be downloaded at
If you have any questions, please call Secova toll-free at
1-877-793-3589. Your call is confidential. Their staff is very familiar
with our State Group Insurance Program, and they are available to help
you 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
