If you currently include your children on your health insurance, the Affordable Care Act allows you to keep them on your family policy until they reach age 26. This means you can make sure they have health insurance even if they no longer live with you, are married, or are no longer in school. You do not have to claim them as a dependent on your tax return. You will not be able to include their spouse or their children on your policy.
