A carrier shall not exclude an eligible employee or dependent if:


The employee or dependent:


Was covered under other creditable coverage at the time of the initial period for enrollment;


Lost coverage under the other creditable coverage as a result of termination of employment or eligibility, the involuntary termination of the creditable coverage, the death of a spouse or divorce; and


Requests enrollment within 30 days after termination of the other creditable coverage;


The employee is employed by an employer that offers multiple contracts and elects a different contract during an open period for enrollment; or


A court has ordered that coverage be provided for a dependent under a covered employee’s contract and the request for enrollment is made within 30 days after issuance of the court order.
