Q. When my daughter turned 23, my insurance company told me she would no longer be covered under my family plan. I heard I can insure her now, under the new health care law. Is that right?
A. Yes. Under the new health care reform law, plans that offer coverage for children must now cover young adults until their 26th birthday — regardless of where they live and whether they are students, financially independent or married. This requirement applies to individually purchased plans and group plans offered through employers.
