Great River, NY asked in Family Law and Health Care Law for New York

Q: My girlfriend's 22 year old daughter is under my girlfriend health care insurance.

Her daughter wants to be taken off the health insurance. We don't want her off cause she'll be going to a lesser insurance plan. Do we have to take her off the health insurance plan cause she wants off? We want to keep her on cause it's a better plan.

We live in New York.

A: She is an adult and you cannot keep her on your plan if she doesn't want to be on it. You can point out to her the benefit of your plan over hers and the savings she will have in costs if she stays with your plan but in the end it is her decision.
