Legislation, Presidential & Congressional Politics/ObamaCare

Question
QUESTION: From what I understand, ObamaCare requires insurance companies to cover "children" to age 26 and OPM says parents are "required" to cover children to age 26 (they give no reference.

The question - who, if any, is "required" to pay the additional premiums to cover that adult child and who is "required" to pay the copays, deductibles and uninsured bills ?

Your position on this and references would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you so much.

ANSWER: The parents have to pay for it.

---------- FOLLOW-UP ----------

QUESTION: The adult/child is over 18.

You said "the parents have to pay for".  

Do you mean the parents "have to" are "required" to pay for the additional premiums, copays, deductibles and uninsured medical bills under ObamaCare ?

And please, provide all references, legal references to support this.

Thank you.

Answer
Unless the child has their own coverage they are on the parents policy until 26. Parents pay the premium. The pay the same rate as they did at age 18.
