Utah was among 22 states to pass laws or regulations to enforce an early provision of federal health reform mandating that health insurers cover all kids, even the sick ones. The rules succeeded in reviving child­only plans, a valuable product for cash­strapped parents who can't afford to cover themselves.

Note • Maine, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York and Vermont required insurers to provide coverage to individuals prior to the Affordable Care Act and, thus, already prohibited the denial of coverage to children under age 19. Kentucky issued a regulatory order which is binding on all insurers marketing individual health insurance.
