    Thanks to the GREAT Health Care Reform...there is now a loophole in which insurance companies can drop coverage on college students IF THERE IS AVAILABLE COVERAGE (NO MATTER HOW BAD) through an employer, even if it is a part-time job that has horrendously bad insurance.

    So...even though my daughter is a full time student, as long as she is working to help pay for college and that part-time job carries some minimal crap insurance - her solid coverage she has through us is gone.
    So her choice is to either quit the job or stay insured.

    The reason companies are dropping the coverage is due to the higher expense of coverage due to the reform. (the only stipulation before the health care plan was that the child must be a full time student)

    Thanks

    you mean she cannot decline the insurance coverage by an employer?
    I have declined employer insurance before.

    nope.
    They have hired a company to audit each dependent, we have to contact her employer and give it to this company who will then verify if there is any available insurance - if there is, they will drop coverage in 30 days whether she has signed up for the insurance or not.

    The only stipulation in the 22 years I have had coverage is that the child had to be a student.
    In the 3 page letter, they state the reason for this change is due to higher cost in the coming years due to the HCR act. That in order to keep employee contribution from dramaticc increases is to cut coverage.

    What part of englis language do you not understand dolt.
    I clearly stated the only stipulation before was that the child must be enrolled full time in an accredited college.
