UnitedHealthcare answeredUnder the Affordable Care Act, your adult children can receive coverage under your health plan until the age of 26, even if your children no longer live at home or is no longer a student. It applies to single and married adult children but does not extend to the spouses or children of your adult children. The new policy aims to cover as many young adults under the age of 26 as possible with the least burden. There is a transition for certain existing group plans that generally do not have to provide dependent coverage until 2014 if the adult child has another offer of employer-based coverage aside from coverage through the parent.
