Tennessee Medical Association wants law changed to insure more young adults
The Tennessean, April 24, 2008
Under current Tennessee law, the cutoff age for dependent health benefits is 24 for full-time students and age 19 for others. But the Tennessee Medical Association is expected to ask state lawmakers to extend the age limit to 25 and to include those who aren't in school full time. If approved, Tennessee would join approximately a dozen states that have passed laws allowing young adults to remain on their families' polices up to age 25.
