If she is under 26, have you considered the cost to carry her on your plan? I carry both of my kids on my health insurance, and plan to do so until they turn 26 in 3 years, which is also when I plan to retire. As it turns out, it is cheaper for me to have family insurance than for them to each get health insurance for themselves, although with DS changing jobs, I'm not even sure he will have health insurance offered through an employer, and he needs to be covered due to his health issues.

It might be worth investigating as an alternative since you are looking at different insurances anyhow.

I guess I had assumed once I FIRE'd and was out in the open market for insurance, the costs would be higher with a child on my plan vs her going separate and taking advantage of her job or the tax credits if she gets insurance through an exchange.

Thanks for the suggestion. I'll look into that as well.
