Eligible Dependents and Qualifying Life Events

Eligible Dependents

Dependents eligible for coverage in the Air Medical Group Holdings benefits plans include:


Your legal spouse (or common-law spouse in states which recognize common-law marriages).

Spouse Eligibility Details

  • If your spouse is employed and has access to health care coverage through their employer, they are not eligible for Air Medical Group Holdings medical coverage.
  • If your spouse is not eligible for coverage from an employer, is self-employed, works for an AMGH company, or has lost coverage as an active employee but has been offered COBRA, your spouse is eligible to enroll in the Plan.
  • If your spouse is covered by Medicare, the eligibility rule does not apply.
  • If your spouse experiences a Qualifying Life Event (loss of job, etc.) during the year, he or she can be added to your Air Medical Group Holdings medical coverage within 31 days of the Qualifying Life Event. The Company reserves the right to verify whether or not your spouse is provided coverage elsewhere. We expect this information to be consistent with the information you reported during your enrollment. Misrepresenting whether your spouse has access to medical coverage outside of Air Medical Group Holdings may result in disciplinary action.
