Michelle's Law

Michelle's Law prohibits group plans from terminating a college student's health insurance coverage based on the student taking a medically necessary leave of absence from school or changing to a part-time status.  Coverage is extended for at least one year.

The key requirements are:

  • Must be medically necessary
  • Must have written certification by the physician recommending the leave or change in enrollment status
  • Student must have been enrolled in the group plan before the first day of leave
  • Student is responsible for the cost of coverage
