Why not? If something happened to them between college and finding a job that provides benefits, who do you think would emd up paying? Dad and Mom. Been there, it's a scary time.

Anyone who thinks people in their 20's shouldn't be able to stay on their parents insurance is a moron as far as I'm concerned. Families pay extra money for these policies so what business is it of anybody else? In addition, the point made by sigrid is exactly correct. When uninsured individuals get sick we all have to pay. Better that they have insurance.
