This section of the web site contains links to the following information to guide you through the enrollment process:

  1. New Hire Enrollment Instructions – Please print this document to assist you in completing the Enrollment Form while online. The Enrollment Instructions provide detailed information regarding completion of each section of the form.
  2. Enrollment Form Login – The enrollment form must be completed by all Trainees and Affiliates for initial enrollment in your selected plans. Please complete the enrollment form to do the following:
    • To enroll yourself and eligible dependents
    • To waive coverage for your eligible dependents

    Please note: If you do not enroll yourself or your eligible dependents within the 31-day initial period of eligibility, neither you nor your dependents will be eligible for enrollment in these plans until the next open enrollment period for the following plan year, unless there is a qualifying ‘life’ event. Your 31-day initial period of eligibility begins with your appointment start date in Section 1 of the Enrollment Form.

    The Enrollment Form is a secure document, and in order to initially access the form you will need your 1) City of Hope Employee ID Number and 2) date of birth. When you click on New Hire Enrollment Form Login, you will be prompted to enter this information in the spaces provided. Once you have entered the information, click Login and you will be prompted to create your own unique password. Please keep a note of this password for future visits to this web site. Once you create your unique password, you will be taken to your pre-populated enrollment form. If you are unable to access the form with your City of Hope Employee ID number and date of birth, please call us immediately for assistance at the number listed below.

    An ID card will be mailed to your home subsequent to your enrollment if you enroll in the medical, dental, and/or vision plans.
