On July 29, 2009, Governor Paterson signed into law a bill that permits parents to keep their young adult dependents, through age 29, covered under their health insurance. In his 2009 State of the State Address, Paterson stated that “one in three New Yorkers from the ages of 19 to 29 are still uninsured.” He went on to explain that a shift must be made to furnish “primary, preventive and community-based care.” The new law takes effect on September 1, 2009 and applies to all policies.
