Question
Hello, my adult son lives with us and cannot work due to several health problems. What do I need to do to make sure he can stay on my health insurance after he is 26. Thanks.

Answer
Hi Alex-
I rather doubt that you will be able to keep him on after he is 26.  It was a very popular part of the ACA to even extend it to age 26.  He would likely qualify for Medicaid though.  You can probably apply on line for it with him.

Hope this helps.
