Issue Position: Health Care for Working Families - Offering Coverage to More Uninsured Nebraskans

Issue Position

Location: Unknown

Before LB 551 in 2009, anyone aged 23 or older could no longer qualify for coverage under their parents' health insurance. Unfortunately, finding a job -- especially a job that offers insurance benefits -- has become increasingly difficult and too many Nebraskans in their mid-20's have been forced off their parents insurance with few options.
