Opt-Out Credit for Electing “No Coverage”

You can receive a $62.50 per pay period payment if you waive Green Dot medical coverage because you and your covered tax dependents have other coverage that is not through the individual market — for example:

  • You are covered by your spouse or domestic partner’s employer group health plan.
  • You are covered by your parent or guardian’s employer group health plan.

To receive the payment, you must actively log in to Workday, elect “decline medical plan,” and complete the Opt-Out Payment Attestation Form to certify that you meet the above requirements. You will not receive the payment if you miss the enrollment deadline and default to Employee Only coverage in the following plans:* Anthem Vivity HMO Plan

  • MetLife DHMO Plan
  • VSP Vision Plan

Please note: If a family member is a Green Dot employee covered under any Green Dot medical plans and you are covered as a dependent under their plan, the waive incentive does not apply.

* National employees located outside of CA will default to “no coverage”.

Don’t Have a Primary Care Doctor?

You should – here’s why.

  • Better health. Getting the right health screenings each year can reduce your risk for many serious conditions. In-network preventive care is free, so there’s no excuse to skip it.
  • A healthier wallet. Having a doctor you can call helps you avoid costly trips to the emergency room and decide when you really need to see a specialist.
  • Peace of mind. Advice from someone you trust … it means a lot when you’re healthy, but it’s even more important when you’re sick. Your primary doctor gets to know you and your health history and can help coordinate any care you need.
