Can Child Stay on VA Plan Until 26?
I am a VA Federal employee with Triple-S as my Medical Insurance Plan. I have a 23 years old daughter studying full time in UNC Chapel Hill in USA pursuing a PHD. She was taken out of my plan and she does not have any private Medical Insurance Plan at this time. Under the Obamacare is she entitled to continue receiving medical care under my Federal medical plan until she is 26 years old?
TRICARE and VA coverage are excluded from some ACA rules including the rule for staying on a parents plan until 26. You can learn more about what parts of the ACA TRICARE and VA coverage embrace and what rules are specific to those insurance types here: http://fas.org/sgp/crs/misc/R41198.pdf.
