All health insurance plans, whether they're grandfathered or not, have to extend coverage to adult children up to age 26. However, until 2014, grandfathered group plans don't have to extend that coverage if the young-adult dependent has access to job-based health benefits elsewhere.The fact that almost half of workers are still in grandfathered plans doesn't surprise Judy Waxman, the National Women's Law Center vice president for health and reproductive rights. The center is a strong proponent of the Affordable Care Act.
