Health Insurance Companies and Legislative Bodies: Allow Individuals to Add their Parents on Their Health Insurance plans

Millions of aging adults in the USA and abroad go without health insurance at critical points in their lives. Many go without insurance because they can no longer be employed, cannot afford it, or are waiting for insurance benefits to begin. Many others will never qualify for good quality insurance that can meet their needs; and if they do, they will not ever be able to afford it. So many parents did so much to care for the needs of their children, yet suffer from illness and disease for which they cannot be treated due to this gap in healthcare coverage and affordability. The simple solution is not a healthcare reform, tax changes, or political action campaigns. The simple solution is to put change in people's hands. Allow adults to cover their parents insurance if they choose. Adults can add children and spouses, even domestic partners in some states. Why not parents? We were dependent on them, now allow them to be dependent on us. This benefits the interest of insurance companies, who will now acquire more business from those who would otherwise not seek plans. It benefits adults who can know that their parents will no longer suffer without a solution. And most importantly, it benefits the millions of older adults who have done so much for us. Now it is time to give something back. Allow us to claim parents as dependents on insurance.

Allow Individuals to Add their Parents on Their Health Insurance Plans

      This is a great possibility for change to our healthcare system. I know many people--my father included--who have worked blue-collar jobs for years (paying medicare tax and social security) with no hope of ever being offered health insurance through their work. Consequently, they go without health insurance and hope for the best. They can only hope to not acquire major illnesses or the need for hospitalization or surgery before reaching Medicare eligibility age. So much potentially irreversible damage to the health of so many hard working Americans can be repaired with this simple change. Allowing children to claim their parents as dependents is the perfect solution, and I fully support this petition for change.

      I am an immigrant to the United States, but I am not able to add my parents in my insurance. United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) considers parents as immediate relatives then why not the insurance companies and states?

      I request to all NRIs (Non resident Indians)/PIO (Person of Indian Origin) to support this campaign.

      Thanks,

      Vikrant
