Will An Employee’s Grandchild Be Covered Under COBRA?
I am covered under insurance by my parents due to my status as a student, but my daughter is not covered. Is there an insurance plan that will cover children only offered by COBRA?
The grandchild of an employee is not eligible for COBRA even when the child’s parent is on the employee’s COBRA continuation.
No Pre-Existing Conditions? No Problem.
