Millions of young adults to regain parents’ health coverage
Sacramento Bee

Millions of 20-somethings who became uninsured after falling off their parents’ health plans can regain coverage soon as a key provision of the federal health care overhaul law takes effect. As the open enrollment season begins, parents will be able to include grown children up to age 26 on their coverage. The new law goes into effect Sept. 23 and requires insurers and companies to offer the coverage as part of the open enrollment period, the time of year when health plan subscribers can change plans and coverage.
