Most states have laws which allow parents to continue health plan coverage for their disabled adult children, even past the point at which a child’s eligibility for dependent coverage would normally terminate because of their age.

California law, for example, allows coverage to continue if the disabled child can’t support him or herself by work because of “mental retardation or physical handicap” and if the disabled child is “chiefly dependent” on the insured parent for support and maintenance.

Vocational Rehabilitation can pay for job training, job matching, assistive tech, college or certificate programs, independent living training and more.
