Young adults are able to stay on their parent's plan or enroll again if they've already gone off it. If the parent's employer plan was already in place before March 23, 2010, young adults can qualify for that coverage only if they are not eligible for their own employer-sponsored plan.
Health plans that cover children can no longer limit or deny benefits for kids up to age 19 because of a pre-existing condition, a health problem, disease, or disability that the child developed before their parents applied for health coverage.
AIIKids eligibility applies to children from birth to 19 years of age, plus pregnant moms. Check with your AIIKids case manager before your 19th birthday to see if you will be eligible to continue on Medicaid.
