Repeal of child-only open enrollment (R 2014-01)
Rule 2014-01 brings Washington open enrollment rules into compliance with the federal Affordable Care Act. Open enrollment rules previously required a special open enrollment from March 15 to April 30 each year for children under the age of 19. The Affordable Care Act now allows parents to keep children on their health insurance plans until age 26.
