Children Staying on Parent's Health Care Until 26
Studies are showing that children that stay on their parent's health care until 26 are receiving better health care. Little wonder...one of the greatest groups of our society that are uninsured are young adults. Usually, the reason is that this group feels that they don't need health care insurance because they are healthy. But when the unexpected accident occurs and the patient is uninsured, the patient usually ends up being written off by the hospital as a hardship case. This is a positive of the Affordable Care Act. Sometimes a weird occurrence arises from this law. When the child of the uninsured is under 26 and still covered by their parents ends up having a baby, the baby isn't covered and needs an individual policy. I am sure that will be fixed soon.
