Eligible Family Members

When you enroll in the Boston University Health Plan, you may elect to cover your eligible family members.

Your eligible family members include:

  • Your legally married opposite sex or same sex spouse
  • Under certain circumstances, your former spouse
  • Your children under age 26
  • Your unmarried, dependent children age 26 and over who are mentally or physically handicapped and unable to support themselves as determined by the health insurance carrier. (To continue coverage, your child must have been handicapped before age 26 and you must contact the Benefits Section of Human Resources before your child’s 26th birthday.)
