I’m raising my grandchild. Is my employer required to cover his insurance?

They might be. If your employer will offer health insurance in 2014—and the insurance covers dependents—your grandchild might be eligible for coverage.

Insurance plans have certain ways of defining a grandchild as a dependent. For example, the plan may require you to list your grandchild as a dependent on your income tax returns.

If you have questions, contact your employer or call the Health Insurance Marketplace at 1-800-318-2596.
