It is very simple. You answer "Unknown". If you want to comment, you can always go to the section of application down below that says "Additional Comments" or something like that and explain why it is unknown (i.e. both parents died when you were a little child, or parents were divorced and you lost track of your dad, or anything else). However, you do not have to explain much. If underwriters of the company that you are applying with, have these additional questions they will call you to conduct a brief phone interview. It is a normal practice with reputable companies and you don't need to be worried if they call. Hope this helps. Sincerely, FH

How long is a parent responsible for health insurance in Wisconsin?

When the child reaches age 18, he is legally considered to be an adult in Wisconsin. A hospital or doctor could not pursue you to pay the child's medical bills. There are other ways that a parent could be held responsible for an 18-year-old's medical care. For example, if the parent had been court-ordered to provide health insurance as part of a child support order. Under health reform, a parent can keep a child on his health insurance until the child reaches age 26. Some plans will not allow you to keep the child on your plan if the child has an employer-sponsored plan offered to him. And you cannot cover your child's spouse or children on your plan.
