Health Insurance Coverage for Young Adults

My son is 23 years old. He graduated from college last June and has been able to earn a living by working two part time jobs. However, neither job provides health insurance and the insurance I receive through my employer will not cover him unless he is a financial dependent. Beginning on September 23, 2010, the Health Care Reform Act requires insurers to offer coverage to kids in family plans through age 26. My son will be covered by my health insurance for up to three more years.
