Son on Family Health Plan if Employed?

By on | 2 Comments

Question: My son, age 23, got hired and enrolled in a PPO health plan at work, because they told him had to. He is still our plan. Can he drop his insurance through work and stay on our plan?

Answer: Your son can be included in your household health coverage through Covered California until age 26, even though he is employed. However, if he is included with your family coverage, your household is not eligible for premium assistance or cost sharing enhancements from the time he was offered health insurance at work.
