AHA's CEO issues statement on new dependent coverage regulation

The American Heart Association applauds the Administration for issuing regulations today that will allow young adult children to remain on their parents’ health insurance until age 26. In addition to helping more young people obtain the care they need to remain healthy, this new law affords important protections for young adults with congenital heart defects or other pre-existing conditions. Children and adults with congenital heart disease face many challenges in finding affordable and adequate health care coverage. As a result, some young people delay necessary treatments or skimp on medications to avoid costs, often with serious medical consequences. This new rule will allow many young adults to remain covered under their parents’ medical plans until they are better established and able to afford coverage on their own or get coverage through an employer.
