Adoption

Depending on the circumstances, you and your family members may have the right to enroll in a group health plan offered through your job or your spouse’s job, even if neither you nor your spouse is presently enrolled in the plan. In addition, the law limits pre-existing condition exclusions for children under 18 years of age who are adopted or placed for adoption. For information on these special rules, see Questions and Answers: Recent Changes in Health Care Law.
