Description

Accident and sickness insurance policies; coverage of children.  Provides that a group health insurance policy that provides coverage for dependent children shall make available such coverage, at the option of the insured group member, for one or more of the member's children who are under age 27 and without certain types of health coverage. An insured group member who opts to provide coverage for such children is required to pay any additional premium. The measure also increases the maximum age of dependent children who may be covered under a group accident and sickness insurance policy from 24 to 25 years, unless otherwise agreed. Finally, the measure expands who constitutes an eligible family member under an individual accident and sickness insurance policy to include children not greater than 25 years and children who meet the measure's qualifications for coverage with respect to a group policy.
