Health insurance extends coverage for young adults

As the debate over the health care reform continues, states have been busy implementing their own laws to permit young adults to stay longer on their parent’s health insurance. New York passed a law allowing parents to keep children on their company’s health insurance up to the age of twenty nine, regardless if they are not students. The stipulation is that the dependant must not be eligible for other coverage and they must work or be a permanent resident of the state. There are more than twenty states so far that have adopted similar laws. Do you think children should be allowed to remain on their parent’s health insurance until their late twenties?
