Until this week, Pennsylvania families in many cases could only keep children on a parent's health insurance until they reached age 19. However, a law passed in May has now gone into effect, allowing parents to cover their children under 30 as long as they:
Have no dependents
Have no health insurance
Live in Pennsylvania or are a full-time college student
According to the Insurance Department, family members with insurance should work with their benefits administrator to determine if their children can be covered.
