This year my son graduated from Virginia Tech and received his commission in the Army. Last month he reported for duty so I called Aetna to drop him from my health insurance. The customer representative said that I could not do that. I said, “Whoa! I am his dad and I am paying the bill. Are you saying I cannot drop him from the plan?” She said that since he was over the age of 21 he had to call or write them requesting to be dropped from the plan. Wow! Talk about stupid! I thought this might be an unintended consequence from the Affordable Care Act but I have not found any rules or regulations requiring the consent of the child if they are over 21.
