COBRA premium rate for 26 yr old child

Q: My employer says the premium for child losing coverage due to turning 26 is the same as subscriber rate, not lower child only rate. Is this correct?

A: Yes, typically a child is anyone under the age of 18 in regards to health plans. You “child losing coverage” is actually a dependent losing coverage. They are considered an adult at age 18 and older. You may want to confirm with your HR or COBRA Administrator to be sure.
