Children of adult dependants on your membership

In the January 2019 edition of MediBrief, we explained how long, and under which conditions, your child can stay on your membership as an adult dependant after the age of 23. If the conditions are fulfilled and your child remains on the Scheme as an adult dependant and they have children, your grandchildren will be eligible to join the Scheme as well.

The Scheme’s eligibility criteria will apply to both your adult dependant and your grandchild. Your grandchild will no longer be eligible for membership should your adult dependant’s membership be terminated and will only be able to remain on the Scheme if you adopt the grandchild. In such a case, special application needs to be made to the Management Committee for consideration.
