Dependent insurance coverage

Require US employers to comply with dependent coverage to age 26 now and not at next enrollment.

Legislation is in place to cover dependent children to the age of 26 starting 9/1/2010. However employers are using open enrollment dates to drop coverage on full time student dependent children at the age of 24 telling employees that they is the policy but can add them back next year at open enrollment. It is only affecting a small group of students in professional school but is having a major impact on the parents of these children.
