  • Active Employee dependents ages 19-23, must be full-time students, unmarried and living with the subscriber (unless boarding at college or as required under a Qualified Medical Child Support Order) to be enrolled in the dental and vision plans. Dependent children under age 26 do not need to be full-time students, unmarried or living with the subscriber to be enrolled in the medical and drug plans.*
  • Retiree dependents ages 19-23, must be full-time students, unmarried and living with the subscriber parent (unless boarding at college or as required under a Qualified Medical Child Support Order) to be enrolled in the medical, drug, dental and vision plans.

Student certifications must be submitted in the form of a letter from an accredited school, college or university, signed by the school registrar’s office, or a verification document from the National Student Clearinghouse.

*This applies to the Active Employee plans only per the provisions of the Affordable Care Act.
