You need to know how the insurance company defines dependents. Most companies say they are your dependent biological / legally adopted children 19 years and that are supported financially and even the age of 23 who are full-time student at an accredited school and financial support. Because it is not his biological son , and I suppose never legally adopted , I think not, he can not cover in their plan. If the grandchild is considered dependent on your annual tax return with the IRS, then it is likely that the child will be covered. If IRS is not considered an eligible dependent, then it is unlikely . In any case, you should check with your employer or insurance company to see how dependent are defined as it is a very common situation . There is nothing to prevent us from paying an individual policy for your grandson. That covers your grandchild in your group plan is not allowed.
