  • was, or would have been, covered as an eligible family member under this Plan immediately prior to the birthday on which the child's eligibility would have otherwise ceased, or
  • either
  • was, or would have been, covered as an eligible family member under this Plan immediately prior to the birthday on which the child's eligibility would have otherwise ceased, or
