Do I have to claim my child as a dependent to get dependent coverage?

    No. Under the health care reform law, an adult child does not need to qualify as a tax dependent to be covered under the parents’ health insurance plan.

    For more information on dependent coverage or on health care reform, visit healthcare.gov or uhc.com/reform.
