Health Insurance Coverage of Children to Age 26
On September 1, 2011, the federal Affordable Care Act raises the age for children's eligibility in the Texas Employees Group Benefits Program (GBP) to 26, regardless of marital status.
During Annual Enrollment, July 11-August 5, you can enroll children who turned 25 before September 1, 2011, or children under age 26 who are married. This includes children covered by COBRA. You did not have to cover your children through the GBP previously to enroll them during this summer's Annual Enrollment.
Evidence of insurability (proof of good health) is not required in the GBP during Annual Enrollment. Their coverage will begin September 1.
