Extension of Dependent Health Care Coverage Up to Age 26

Proposed Amendments of Sections 599.500 through 599.501: Health Care Definitions and Coverage, to Article 2 of Chapter 2 of Division 1 of Title 2 of the California Code of Regulations

In this filing, the Board proposes to amend Section 599.500 and 599.501 to conform State regulation to the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act and the Health Care and Education Reconciliation Act of 2010 by extending health care coverage to adult children up to age 26 for all categories of eligible children.  The amendments to CCR sections 599.500 and 599.501 will also clarify these regulations by providing separate definitions for those groups of children who are, and have been, eligible for coverage under PEMHCA and pursuant to section 599.500(n), as well as clarify eligibility requirements for those groups.

The text of this proposed regulatory action was authorized for publication by the CalPERS Board on September 14, 2010.
