Text Search




Enter the text to search for and click Search to get a list of statutes containing the text you entered. Tips:
  • Multiple words will be searched as a phrase. Entering Property Tax will return statutes that contain the complete phrase Property Tax.
  • Logical Operators are allowed. Hunting and Fishing will return statutes that containing both hunting and fishing. Hunting or Fishing will return statutes that contain hunting, fishing, or both.
  • Wild cards(*) are allowed. Entering Approp* will return statutes that contain Appropriation, Appropriate, Appropriated, etc..
  • Punctuation can also be used as operators. + = and, , = or. Searching for phrases that have , and will result in error unless you enclose the entire phrase in quotes.
The Filter option allows you to narrow your search results to a specific Title or Chapter. Here is a tip for using the filter option.
  • Use a dash (-) as the last character of your filter to refine searches. For example the filter "1-1" returns sections in 1-1, 1-10, 1-11, 1-12, etc. The filter "1-1-" returns only sections in Chapter 1-1.

     58-18-31.1.   Dependent coverage termination--Age--Full-time student. No insurer or health carrier issuing health insurance coverage, other than excepted benefits, that provides dependent coverage for any qualifying child, as defined by rules promulgated pursuant to § 58-18-79, may terminate coverage due to attainment of a limiting age below age twenty-six. If the dependent remains a full-time student upon attaining the age of twenty-six but not exceeding the age of twenty-nine, the insurer shall provide for the continuation of coverage for that dependent at the insured's option. Nothing in this section requires the employer to contribute any portion of the premium for dependents that are full-time students and have attained the age of twenty-six. However, the provisions of this section do not apply to any qualifying relative, as defined by rules promulgated pursuant to § 58-18-79, whose gross income is less than the exemption amount as prescribed by the director by rules promulgated pursuant to chapter 1-26. Continuation of coverage for full-time students attaining the age of twenty-four is not required if the dependent has other creditable coverage in force nor required for any full-time students who attained the age of twenty-four prior to July 1, 2007. (SL 2011, ch 216, § 19 provides: "The provisions of this Act are repealed if the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, Pub. L. No. 111-148, 124 Stat. 119 (2010), as amended by the Health Care and Education Reconciliation Act of 2010, Pub. L. No. 111-152, 124 Stat. 1029 (2010) is found to be unconstitutional in its entirety by a final decision of a federal court of competent jurisdiction and all appeals exhausted or time for appeals elapsed.")
