What happens when you are no longer considered a dependant?

Please refer to AV Business Rules for the full definition of who can be considered a Dependant.

Providing the dependant takes out a single membership within 30 days of no longer being eligible under the family membership, they will be entitled to full benefits immediately and the 14 day qualifying period will be waived. Join Now.
