How Long Can My Child Stay on My Family Medical Insurance Plan?We’ve been receiving quite a few questions lately about family medical insurance, so we’ve decided to begin a series of blog posts to answer some of these frequently asked questions.

Keep in mind that Medical Plan Quotes focuses specifically on health insurance in California, Nevada, and Arizona. If you live in a different state, make sure to seek out information that is specific to your region.

Today we’ll be answering this question: when do you officially drop your son or daughter from medical insurance policy?

How Long Can My Child Stay On My Health Insurance Plan?

Beginning in March of this past year, the Affordable Care Act requires that insurance companies cover children under their parents’ insurance plan until they are 26.

Even if your child is married, in school, not financially dependent on you, lives elsewhere, or is eligible for their employer’s plan, you may still provide health insurance for them under your family medical insurance plan.

The purpose of this is to secure more health insurance access for young adults, who are typically less insured over all than the general population.
