Question: I am 21 years old and on my parent’s insurance. I just got a job that offers insurance but it is not as good as my parents. Can I deny my employer’s insurance and just stay on my parents?
Answer: Yes. You may sign a WAIVER OF GROUP HEALTH INSURANCE COVERAGE. The waiver says something like this, “I hereby certify that I have been given the opportunity to participate in the group health insurance plan provided by my employer through XYZ Insurance Company and have been informed of the consequences of not enrolling in such plan at this time. I understand that if I reject the group health plan on behalf of myself and/or my spouse or other eligible dependents, the group health plan will not provide any benefits on behalf of those individuals for whom I have waived coverage. With this knowledge, I decline to enroll.” You will usually be asked to list your current coverage.
