What the Expert Says:

MarvG:

If you are one, you will be able to stay on your family's insurance until age 26.  Usually upon graduation, your college health plan expires.  This means you would not have redundant plans.  also, it gives you the option of purchasing your own should you so desire. Since the economic downturn, many graduates are jobless.  this legislation will help you fill the insurance gap until employed.
