Under 30 in PA? You Might Be Able to Get Insurance Through Your Parents

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:

Are single
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.

How will this help you? Let us know in the comments!
