Coverage of Young Adults through the Dependent Under 31 Law
Coverage of Young Adults through the Dependent Under 31 Law L
To increase the options for young adults to obtain or maintain health coverage and have better access to health care services, the New Jersey Legislature enacted P.L. 2005, c. 375, and then revised it effective in 2009 (if interested, see sections 29 through 35 of P.L. 2008, c. 38). The law is sometimes referred to as the Dependent Under 31 (DU31) law or the DU31 election, because the law permits young adults to continue coverage or become covered under a parent’s group health plan as an over-age dependent until the young adult’s 31st birthday.
A young adult may use the DU31 election right to:
- continue coverage under a parent’s group health benefits plan, when the young adult is “aging-out” of that parent’s coverage; or
- become covered under a parent’s group health benefits plan, so long as the young adult has had coverage at some time in the past.
Details of the DU31 and enrollment applications are found in this folder.
