We have a son that is 23 years old. He has graduated from college and has a job that is in the construction field.
He does not have the option for health coverage from his employer.
He is now unemployed due to weather. (He is in the masonry business).
He is covered under my husband’s insurance yet, but only major medical.
He had Dental also from my husband’s insurance, but they dropped him at the age of 23.
They claim they can do this. Is this legal under the Obamacare? They did not inform us that he was being dropped. I thought they had to inform you in writing first of all and don’t they have to cover to age 26?
I was looking at the site and it says nothing about being able to drop anything at the age of 23.
My son is living with us yet and does not get paid much from his job. He is currently unemployed until the weather breaks or they have inside work.
Dental coverage only has to be offered to children and teens under 18. If your son is unemployed and you don't get deductions for him, you may want to have him file his own taxes so he can take advantage of assistance programs including cost assistance on the Marketplace and Medicaid if your state expanded.
