discusses the issues employers are facing relating to the requirement to extend health insurance coverage to adult children.
On March 23, 2010, President Obama signed into law the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. This legislation, along with the Health Care and Education Reconciliation Act of 2010, makes sweeping changes to the U.S. healthcare system, including an extension of health insurance coverage to young adult children up to age 26. Though many of the changes will become effective over the next several years, the extension of coverage to young adult children takes effect in as little as six months from enactment.
