New health care law


Q. Does the new health care law that allows for dependents up to 26 years of age to remain covered under certain conditions apply to the dental and vision plans offered to federal employees?

A. The answer to this and many other questions relating to the new health care law have yet to be worked out between now and when the law becomes effective for the Federal Employees Health Benefits program on Jan. 1, 2011. In the meantime, we’ll all have to be patient.
