My daughter is currently on my employer plan, she turns 26 in March and will be off my employer plan end of March. What does she need to do now under Obamacare?
Under ObamaCare when a child turns 26, and loses family plan coverage, it triggers a 120 day Special Enrollment Period. This is true for employer family plans and private ones.
That period starts 60 days before they turn 26 allowing them to enroll in a plan that will start when the old one ends.
Check with your insurer to know exactly what day their coverage will end and make sure you enroll in a Marketplace plan before the 15th of the month before the month you need coverage. For instance if you need coverage August 1st, enroll no later than July 15th.
