My child will be going to college. Can I keep his or her coverage active?
Who is this for?
If you’re a Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan member, this information can help you know if you can keep your child's coverage active while he or she is in college.
Yes. As long as your plan covers dependents, your child will be able to stay on your plan up to age 26.
There is one exception. Until 2014, if your plan is “grandfathered”—that is, it existed on or before March 23, 2010—and your child is eligible for group coverage through his or her employer, your child may not be able to remain on your plan.
