Thought of the Day 563

August 13, 2015

Medical care is one of the most important services, if not the most important service, that a person with special needs may need over the course of his or her life.  The transition from a parent’s health insurance to an individual plan can begin at age 18 and stretch until the child turns 26 or, in some cases, even longer.  Since proper medical care is literally a life-or-death matter, it makes sense to begin planning for this transition as early as possible.
