Young adults up through age 26 who continue to stay on their parents’ health insurance plans under the new healthcare reform provisions cannot be required by health insurers to pay more for their coverage than those family members currently covered, according to a new interim final rule released Monday by the Department of Health and Human Services. Also, under the rule, plans cannot vary benefits based on the age of the child.
