As you are aware, Health insurance coverage through EMHP has been available for dependent children that are full time college students. Under the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) coverage was expanded to include adult children up to age 26 if they have no other health insurance. Effective 1/1/2014 coverage is available for dependent children up to age 26 regardless of whether or not they are covered under their own or a spouse’s employer sponsored coverage. EMHP would become secondary to his/her primary insurance. In order to receive this coverage you must complete and submit the form titled RECERTIFICATION FOR COVERAGE OF ADULT CHILD(REN) AGE 19-26. The form is available on the EMHP website under the EBU Forms section. http://www.emhp.org/
