Can I Remove My 3-yr Old from Employer Coverage?

By on | No Comments

Question: We have a family coverage that's through my employer. It's a PPO. Can we still have a covered CA insurance just for our son? There are certain therapy he needs that's not covered by my insurance.

Answer: Your son cannot have a second health insurance plan, either Covered California or off-exchange, if he is already covered by your employer-based insurance plan. There is no option to make a change in his coverage at this time. Even if you were willing to pay full-price for health plan for your son, you would have to first voluntarily cancel his coverage under your group plan, but that would make him ineligible for a Special Enrollment in 2016. You will have to wait until Jan 1, 2017 to make that change.
