I am turning 26 on June 1st and will be dropped by my mom’s federal government plan at BC/BS. Do I need to get Obama care that day? I am also unemployed.
Losing health coverage because you're turning 26 qualifies you for a 120-day Special Enrollment period that begins 60 days before your 26th birthday. This means that you have 60 days after turning 26 before you will need to have coverage. During this time you can shop for health insurance plans (and qualify for subsidies and cost assistance).
Make sure to enroll in a plan by the 15th of the month before you need coverage and check with your provider to be sure that your coverage will start on time.
