Ages 19-25: Does a parent's health plan cover you?


Ages 19-25: Does a parent's health plan cover you?

The new national health care law permits young adults aged 19-25 to be covered as dependents on a parent's health insurance. Have you weighed the costs and benefits of this option? Does this change in the law affect your educational, work or life opportunities?

KPCC health reporter Stephanie O'Neill wants to hear from young adults (and their parents) about how this new aspect of health care is working.

Does it make sense financially to be on a parent's insurance policy? Is coverage more affordable from your job or school? If you're on a parent's policy, are you paying the extra or do they pick up the cost?
