Many children need coverage at this important time in their lives as they attend college, grad school or start new jobs. We can't afford to have our 20 year olds neglect their health when they are just getting started; they are our future.
We can't afford to neglect our children at any age.
I have two children in their twenties and one who is 13. My middle child was about to graduate from college and we were informed her coverage would end on her graduation day. The new law allowed that she would be covered up to age 26 but the insurance company said they did not have to comply until January 2011. We found short term coverage for her so that she would not be uninsured until January at which time our insurance company would re- instate her. After many phone calls and emails this has been straightened out but with out the new health care reform my daughter would have no insurance. My oldest son is going to seminary in the fall and he also will be able to be back on our insurance plan.
