States redefine family health policies

AP/Yahoo News, February 21, 2008
States now are looking at adults between the ages of 19 and 29 as they seek to reduce the number of uninsured. In the past two years alone, 17 states have passed laws that let young adults stay covered under their family policy until their mid-20s. Age limits range from 24 in Delaware, Indiana and South Dakota, to 30 in New Jersey. Eleven states settled on age 25, according to the Commonwealth Fund.
