    Yeap. In fact, did you know that Currently, many insurance companies do not allow adult children to remain on their parents’ plan once they reach 19. Companies cannot do that any more. Search onilne for “Wise Health Insurance” and you can insure your kids if you are in the same boat.

    Excellent description on the suspect. Let’s be politically correct and not mention the color of his skin while we canvas the area.
