Your child is covered under your Self and Family enrollment until age 26. There is no ‘live with’ requirement other than for foster children. If you are enrolled in an HMO, your child will only be covered for emergency care while outside the HMO’s service area. If your child is living outside your HMO’s service area, you may want to change to an FEHB plan that provides coverage both where your child is living and where the rest of your family is living. Your plan brochure describes your HMO’s service area. You can download your plan brochure by clicking on your state.
Foster children must live with you and meet all of the requirements below:
You must sign a certification stating that your foster child meets all the requirements. Contact your agency or Retirement System for more information.
