LAUSD _–   Eligible Dependents Include

Disabled child age 19 or older-You may be required by the plan administrator(s) to provide a copy of the guardianship papers indicating that the child is dependent upon you for support, and provide proof of the child’s disability. To be eligible for this coverage, the child must have been enrolled for coverage before age 19. Coverage may continue as long as you remain an eligible employee or retiree, and your disabled dependent meets the plan’s eligibility requirements.  (LAUSD Website)

Coverage for a disabled child may continue past age 18 if your health plan determines that your child became disabled before the limiting age (check with your health plan to determine the limiting age).  LA County Employees Page 4

Disabled over-age dependent children

If a disabled child who is covered under your Blue Shield plan reaches the maximum age limit specified in your Group Health Service Contract, Evidence of Coverage or Certificate of Insurance, coverage may continue if the child meets both of the following criteria. He or she is:

• Incapable of self-sustaining employment because of a mental or physical handicap, and

• Unmarried and dependent on the employee for economic support.

The child’s primary physician must submit to Blue Shield a written certification of the disability at all of the following times:

• Thirty-one days before the child reaches the maximum age limit, and

• Six months after the child’s coverage would have ended, and then annually thereafter.

In addition, the employee must submit a Declaration of Disability for Over-Age Dependent Children (see page A.5).

Ca Insurance Code 10277, my daughter does qualify for coverage to be reassessed in one year.

I just have a question about this insurance code 10277. I have insurance thru a large group plan and my daughter was diagnosed before age 26 and meets the criteria for disabled dependent. They are denying her saying they are only under fed rules and that she needed to be ill before age 19.


Does the employer qualify as being out of state?
