Health Insurance

About The Affordable Care Act and College Students

Under the Affordable Care Act, if your parents' health insurance plan covers children they can now add or keep you on their policy until you turn 26 years old.

What this Means for You

By allowing children to stay on their parents' plan, the Affordable Care Act makes it easier and more affordable for young adults to get health insurance coverage.

Adult children can join or remain on their parents' plan whether or not they are:

  • married
  • living with parents
  • in school
  • financially dependent on parents
  • eligible to enroll in their own employer's plan
