As you are considering a dependent eligibility audit and student verification processes for this year, make sure and pay attention to existing state law and the new legislation called "Michelle's Law". “Michelle’s Law” will go into effect in October of 2009. This law prevents a group health plan from removing coverage from a “dependent child” due to a “medically necessary leave of absence” before the earlier of: (1) one year after the first day of the medically necessary leave of absence; or (2) the date on which the coverage under the plan would otherwise terminate.
