Can my Child Stay on my Health Plan if He/She Gets Married?


As a parent, you will see many life changing events with your child. When major life events occur, you may question if your child’s eligibility to be covered on your health care coverage changes too. Don’t fret. Children up to 26 years old are still eligible to be insured under your health plan, regardless of any of the following circumstances.

o Getting married

o Having or adopting a child

o Living out of the state

o Attending or leaving college

o Moving out of parents’ home

o Not being claimed as a tax dependent

o Child declining health coverage through their own job

Understanding the policies and rules of your health plan is crucial to making the best decisions regarding your child’s enrollment. Always discuss any questions you have with your human resources department regarding the specific rules of your plan before you make changes to your coverage.
