A Funny Email from My Dad


I had worried about what would happen to your health insurance coverage should you take next year off. As it turns out, under our current policy, you will be covered until you reach age 23, even if you cease to be a full time student. That (turning 23) will occur on April 2, 2011. As it turns out, the new law that requires that you be covered until you turn age 26 becomes effective for our plan on April 1, 2011. So, no gap in coverage. Talk about fortuitous timing!



So my health insurance coverage as a dependent will be expanded by the new health care bill the day before it would have run out.
