Florida plan would cover more kids
Miami Herald, February 25, 2008
Florida Gov. Chrarlie Crist and the Legislature may be on the verge of taking a significant step to reduce the number of uninsured in Florida. Crist and the insurance industry appear to have agreed that adult children should be allowed to stay on parents' policies until the age of 25 or 30, even if they're no longer in school. The governor has also proposed expanding Florida Kidcare to include all uninsured children in the state.
