Being a parent doesn’t stop when your child leaves home. You’ve nurtured them through each step of their lives. Now, as they step into adulthood, make sure they have a healthy start. The Affordable Care Act (ACA) offers reformed benefits for health insurance in Mississippi. You can now keep your young adults on YOUR health insurance plan through age 26, helping to protect their health and their future.
If your 19- to 26-year-old is unable to gain job-based health insurance, you can now:
- Provide health insurance for college students.
- Continue coverage if your child has his own residence.
- Maintain health insurance even if your young adult is married.
Health Help MS is a not-for-profit program offering resources and assistance to help your family understand and take advantage of the new Mississippi healthcare provisions available through ACA and other programs. All Health Help Services are free. If you need assistance or would like more information about continuing health insurance for kids aged 19 to 26, please complete the form below. One of our team members will contact you to talk about your needs.
