When will I be able to use medical benefits?

Lately I’ve been having issues with shoulder pain and a couple other things. I started working my new job on 3/7/2019. I was told I need 6 months and 600 hours before I can use them. Would I be able to use benefits the very 1st day I reach 6 months in about 2 weeks or will I have to register and wait for card in the mail. I’m only asking because it’s Sunday and I can’t really call up the funding office and ask.

    Probably the first day of the month after you qualify, so Oct 1

    Your benefits will be effective on the very first day and if you need emergency services, it will be covered.

    But few individual doctors offices will make an appointment before you know your member id. Contact your HR dept to see if you can get that beforehand.
