Good lord I hope not.
I think a lot of things are going to have to change if they expect this insurance thing to work. Our kids (SS11, DD7, DD2) all qualify for medicaid. DH and I don't so almost $400 of DHs monthly checks go to insurance. It would be almost a whole check if we added the kids.
Anyway, the state started this new program where the kids are covered through the parents work if insurance is available and the state then pays the premium...the kids are still covered by the state as a second insurance then. We were turned away because it cost more to pay our premium than for the kids to be fully covered by the state.
I am thrilled my kids get to stay on our insurance until 26.
I hadn't even considered this yet. We have 8 yrs till he is 18 though so maybe by then we'll have a new plan.
Quoting whatIknownow:Interesting question.I am thrilled my kids get to stay on our insurance until 26.
I hope not. I dont think either parent should be forced to support their adult child past 18/high school.
