Young Adults’ Coverage May Cost Parents Even More
New York Times

A popular part of the federal health care legislation that allows young people to stay on their parents’ insurance coverage until they are 26 is prompting some creative pricing by employers who are turning to new strategies to charge their workers extra for children on their benefit plans.

An increasing number of employers are turning to “per participant” or “unitized” pricing so an employee’s payroll contribution increases with each dependent a worker adds to their coverage, according to Aon Hewitt, a large Chicago benefits consultancy.
