[quote]Whoa, why wouldn't the kids pay for it. The way I understood it was they have the option, but you do not have to do it. They will be subject to the mandate, and this is just another option. I never got the idea that parents would be directed to have their kids on the insurance, but it was a means to provide them with full coverage when they were starting out, and those early jobs might not have decent covereage, or coverage that meets the governments criteria.
We keep saying kids, but these are adults. I think this portion of the bill gives young adults a method to get the required insurance. I do not think it is goingto be a part of any custody/support agreements or requirements. It just gives the young adults a way to get insurance, but they can pay for it if they want it. [/quote]
That is a different portion of the bill I believe, where you can keep your kids on your insurance until they are 26 now.
There is a seperate program for kids. I'll have to look
