The Department of Health and Human Services on Monday issued regulations governing one imminent change in employer health care plans under the new health care reform law. The regulations cover the requirement that employers who offer coverage to the dependents of employees also offer it to employees’ adult children up to age 26, regardless of whether the adult children are married, tax dependents, in school or living at home. The only exception is that employers with grandfathered plans–those in existence when health care reform became law in March–are not required to cover adult children who have access to health care insurance through their own employer until 2014. The requirement to cover all other adult children up to age 26 takes effect for the first plan year after Sept. 23.
