Can I Still Be On My Parents' Insurance Plan With GOP Bill?

A lot of young people might be watching what's happening with Republican efforts to repeal and replace Obamacare and wonder: What does this mean for me?

Allowing people to remain on their parents' insurance until the age of 26 is one of the most popular Affordable Health Care (aka Obamacare) provisions.

The Republican plan to replace Obamacare, the American Health Care Act (AHCA), actually does not impact this.

If AHCA ultimately becomes the law of the land, people under the age of 26 can still stay on their parents' healthcare plans.

This is good news, but it doesn't makeup for many of the other concerns surrounding AHCA, such as the fact it could lead 24 million people to lose health insurance by 2016 and that it makes rape a preexisting condition.

As Faiz Shakir, American Civil Liberties Union national political director, put it,

Senator Kamala Harris echoed these sentiments.

In a statement, she said,

AHCA passed in the House on Thursday, May 4, 2017, and now moves to the Senate, where it faces significant challenges.
