Open Enrollment for NYSHIP's Young Adult Option Health Insurance

Eligible adult children of NYSHIP enrollees may enroll in the Young Adult Option, and current Young Adult Option enrollees may switch plans, during the 2015 Option Transfer Period November 18–December 18. The Young Adult Option allows adult children under the age of 30 to purchase their own NYSHIP coverage at the full-share individual rate. Coverage applies to medical benefits only. Enrollment in the NYS dental and vision plan is not available through this benefit.

For additional information on the Young Adult Option, please visit the NYSHIP website.

Note: Young adult children of NYSHIP enrollees are eligible to continue coverage as dependents up to age 26 under the enrollee's family coverage.
