Vanderbilt Health Plan members may be selected for audit

This year Vanderbilt took steps to relieve the paperwork burden of proving relationships with covered dependents (spouse, partner, child). However, with that move comes an obligation to then conduct random audits instead of collecting documentation each year.

These audits ensure that the plan is covering only eligible family members. Those employees selected at random to participate will receive an email asking for verification of their dependents’ eligibility. A time frame will be given for a response before benefits are dropped.

If you have questions, please contact the Employee Service Center at 343-7000 or human.resources@vanderbilt.edu.
