N.Y. Civil Service Law Section 164
Coverage for dependents


Each employee shall be entitled to have his spouse and dependent children, as defined by the regulations of the president, included in the coverage upon agreeing to pay his contribution, if any, to the cost of such coverage for such dependents. The president shall adopt regulations governing the discontinuance and resumption by employees of coverage for dependents.


During the fiscal year ending March thirty-first, two thousand sixteen, the president may establish an amnesty period not to exceed sixty days. During this amnesty period when any employee enrolled in the plan voluntarily identifies any ineligible dependent:


the termination of the ineligible dependent’s coverage resulting from such employee’s timely compliance shall be made on a current basis;


the plan shall not seek recovery of any claims paid based on the coverage of the ineligible dependent;


the employee shall not be entitled to any refund of premium paid on behalf of any such ineligible dependent; and


the employee shall not be subject to any disciplinary, civil or criminal action, directly as a result of the coverage of the ineligible dependent.
