Open Enrollment: 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 Option Transfer Period (December 10, 2018–January 18, 2019). The Young Adult Option allows unmarried adult children under the age of 30 to purchase their own NYSHIP coverage at the full-cost individual rate. Coverage applies only to medical benefits. 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 or call the Employee Benefits Division at (800) 833-4344.

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