EXTENDING HEALTH INSURANCE OVER AGE 26


Before a young adult with a disability reaches age 26, you may want to take action to ensure that health insurance coverage continues. There are multiple options available to extend coverage, but not all of the options are available to everyone. If you do qualify to extend coverage, it is not automatic and there are steps you need to take.

In a new blog post from the Texas Council for Developmental Disabilities (TCDD), you can learn what you need to know about extending health insurance coverage for a young adult with a disability. The blog post covers the following:

  • how to continue the same coverage under a parent's plan,
  • alternative methods for extending coverage if a parent's plan is not an option, and
  • how to save money on insurance premiums.

 In addition to outlining how to qualify for certain options, the blog post also provides specific steps to take and timelines for extending health insurance coverage.
