If you leave Ardent

If you leave Ardent, your benefits will end according to the rules of the individual plans.

General guidelines:

  • If Ardent pays for the cost of coverage, your benefits typically end on your last day of employment.
  • If you contribute toward the cost of coverage, your benefits typically end on the last day of the month in which your employment ends.
  • Your Long-Term Disability coverage ends on your last day of employment.
  • Your participation in the flexible spending accounts (FSAs) ends on your last day of employment.
  • Your contributions to the 401(k) plan end with your last paycheck. You may roll over your account into an IRA or another employer’s qualified retirement plan—or take a taxable distribution from the plan. Contact Mercer HR Services at 866-288-3250 for additional information regarding your 401(k) account.

Please review your plan documents for more details about when your coverage ends.

If you qualify, you may have certain rights to continue your medical, dental and vision coverage through COBRA (the federal Consolidated Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act). You will receive an enrollment kit in the mail approximately two weeks after your termination date. Contact benefitsolver at 844-411-4780 for additional information.
