What is the health coverage price for dependent adult children?

A Answers (1)

  • The coverage should offer affordable premiums to any qualified adult child and not more than a similar adult child would pay. The new policy applies only to health insurance plans that offer dependent coverage, which most do. According to government analysis, adding young adult coverage would increase average family premiums by as little as .7 percent while allowing 1.2 million young Americans coverage under their parents' plan through an employer or the individual market.
