Frequently Asked Questions Insurance

My mother (or father, brother, sister, etc.) is now ill and I have to take care of him/her. Does my Option C cover them?

No. Option C coverage only provides coverage for your spouse and eligible children. Mothers, fathers, brothers, sisters and other family members are not covered under Option C. There are no exceptions to this, regardless of the health status of your family member and whether he or she qualifies as your dependent.
