Health Coverage for Young Adults Come at Price

Posted by Sara M. Varese

As part of the new health care reform will include allowing health benefit coverage for young adults up to 26 years old in family plans offered by employers, causing premiums to rise about .7 percent in employer plans starting this fall.

Currently, employers are allowing college students to remain on the plan until they graduate, however, under the new law, these young adults do not have to be in college to enjoy the new health benefits.  The new regulation specifies that young adults cannot be charged more for email marketing and neither can they receive less benefits as other dependents because the costs are spread over evenly among them.
