Brian Fraley: "Health insurance isn't about providing health care, auto insurance isn't about fixing your car. It's about having money available for you to do this."Or this little chestnut taking aim at the comfort families now feel, knowing their kids are still covered by their insurance policy when their off at college or out on their own. It seems so "ridiculous" and "farcical."
Scot Ross: I'd like to have Brian go on ad infinitum, about how the health insurance industry isn't about providing us care. Go ahead, go nuts."
Brian Fraley: "Do you realize how ridiculous it is that you're creating a dependency for individual "adults" until they're 26 to be taken care of by their parents? I mean, that's farcical on its face. Now Wisconsin already had that mandate to 25 I believe, which was a joke unto itself.
So if you're an employer, you not only have to cover the family living in the house of your employee, but you have to cover their "adult children" up to the age of 26, regardless of where they live, regardless of the coverage they have."
