Continuation Health Insurance Coverage for Dependents to Age 30

Printer-friendly version

Group health insurance plans issued or renewed in New Jersey on or after May 12, 2006 must allow adult children to continue as dependents on their parent’s health plan until age 30, if those individuals would otherwise lose coverage under the plan at a specific age.  Notice of this must be provided to an insured employee by the insurer immediately following the effective date of this law (May 12, 2006).  No model notice has been issued; contact your carrier for required information specific to your plan.
