Coverage For Dependent Children
Alan Levenson April 06, 2010
The Obama Health initiative makes provisions for dependent children to age 26. Currently issues come up as to what age carriers will cover these children. When they say to 23, is that through their 23rd year to their 24th birthday? All carriers provide you with a summary of benefits and that issue should be addressed in those documents. The new plan gives insurers six months to include this coverage. I have heard that the wording in the bill allows this to be delayed to 2014. Whatever the case it is prudent to check with your broker and the insurance carrier to find out exactly when your dependent child remains covered.
