Federal healthcare overhaul to keep more young adults on parents’ policies
Los Angeles Times

One of the first provisions of the federal healthcare overhaul — allowing young adults to stay on their parents’ health insurance until they turn 26 — is expected to make a big dent in the number of uninsured young people this year.

The change will make it easier and cheaper for thousands of 20-somethings to obtain insurance, even in states where other options have existed for several years.
