NC lawmakers OK health coverage for young adults

North Carolina legislators have decided to close a gap that would have kicked young adults off the State Health Plan for a few months.

The state Senate voted 29-20 mostly along party lines on Wednesday to allow the children of state employees, teachers and retirees to stay on their parents' insurance until age 26.

If Gov. Beverly Perdue signs the bill into law, the young adults can keep their health coverage between now and later this year, when their coverage is required by the federal health insurance overhaul law.

The bill is believed to affect about 6,800 dependents and cost up to $3.6 million next year.

Republicans and two Democrats voted against the proposal, saying that any extra spending would mean higher budget cuts elsewhere.
