Young Adult eligibility certification form
New York state has passed health laws that give an opportunity to young adults to remain
covered under their parents’ group health insurance plans.
Under the young adult option of the law, unmarried young adults living, working or residing in
New York state will be able to remain covered under their parents’ group health insurance plan.
This will be possible even if the dependent reaches the age at which he/she would have
otherwise aged off the policy, often age 19 or 23, or when no longer a student. To be eligible
for this coverage, he/she does not have to be financially dependent on his/her parent.
The young adult must meet these eligibility requirements:
Must live, work or reside in New York state
Is age 29 or less
Is not married
Is not insured by or eligible for health care coverage through their own employer
Not covered under Medicare
The law provides two distinct ways in which coverage may be extended: a “make-available”
rider and a “young adult option Some eligible employers may choose the “make-available
rider and define dependents as being young adults through the age of 29..
Subscribers in an eligible employer group that does not choose to offer the “make-available”
rider may choose the “young adult option, themselves as a direct-bill option, allowing their
young adult the same coverage as the parent or guardian carries. The rate for this option will
be equal to a single rate policy.
When does the elected coverage take effect?
For an election made within 60 days of “aging out,” the effective date is the date the
young adult would otherwise have lost coverage
For an election made during the required open enrollment period, after a change in
circumstances that newly qualifies the young adult, or the “special election period,” the
effective date must be no later than 30 days after the election and payment of the first
If you have any questions concerning the “make available” or “young adult” law, please contact
Customer Service at the phone number listed on your member identification card.
