The California Public Employees’ Retirement System said Wednesday that it will provide health coverage to nearly 28,000 adult children of public employees and retirees because of the federal health care overhaul law.

Also, the agency said it has eliminated co- payments for some preventive care and coverage limits for certain therapies.

Beginning next year, lifetime annual dollar limits will be eliminated for speech therapy, physical therapy and occupational therapy.
