Premera Blue Cross Extends Adult Dependent Coverage to Age 26

Premera Blue Cross is joining with other insurers around the country to maintain coverage for adult dependent children to age 26 as of June 1.

This policy change automatically applies to dependent children who are covered under individual and small group policies as of June 1, 2010 and who would no longer meet the dependent eligibility age requirements of their current contracts before Oct. 1, 2010. We are also allowing our large employer groups and associations – fully-insured or self-funded – the choice to do the same for their employees’ adult dependent children.

Washington State Changes to the Standard Health Questionnaire

If your applying for individual health insurance in the state of Washington, make sure you have the carriers updated applications and the updated health questionnaire.  With all the changes that state and the carriers are going through I recommend using the carriers websites to apply for coverage.
