The child is not required to live with the parent, and is eligible
even if employed and being offered insurance through his/her own
employer. If the child is a daughter, her pregnancy and delivery are
covered; however, the grandchild will not be covered under the
grandparents’ family plan.
For more information, please visit HealthCare.gov for health coverage for children under 26.
