Hello and welcome to JustAnswer,

My name isXXXXX am a licensed attorney, and my goal is to provide you with excellent service today.

1) No, as a parent any responsibility that you would have to provide health insurance to you child (even with the new law) ends when he or she reaches the age of majority and becomes an adult, which is 18. In fact, most insurance programs only allow for continued coverage if your daughter is in college or lives with you.

2) Again, you have absolutely no obligation to provide health insurance to her at this point and no one can force you to do so.

I hope the above information is helpful.

Please let me know if you have any clarifying or follow up questions as I want to ensure that you are completely satisfied with my service.
