Health Care for America Now - Update

May 14, 2010

America's graduation gift is health care for Moms, Dads AND Grads

Until now, high school and college graduation has meant gaining a diploma but losing your health insurance for millions of young people.

But not any more!

Starting on September 26, 2010, the new health reform law requires insurance companies to provide the option of keeping young people covered until age 26.

That means a brighter future for millions of young people and less worry for their parents!
