Health Insurance in the news

N.J. law insures dependent young adults
State law allows parents to include older adult children on policies

A new law in New Jersey requires insurers to extend family coverage to older children — up to age 30 — as dependents, so long as they are not married and don't have children of their own.

It's one thing for an Insurance comapny to offer this on their own for a higher premium it's another thing for the state to step in and mandadte it. Nothing is free! Who picks up the tab?

Plus...

To ward off the possibility that employees would fake being in a marriage or gay union to get benefits for friends, the University of Florida has come up with a simple solution: you can get benefits, but you have to be having sex. That would rule out a lot of married couples, actually, and I wouldn't want to be the person in charge of verification.

This falls under the dictionary definition of fascism, a system in which the government controls the means of production and distribution.
