Shared Health Benifits for Families

Why can't the dollars that I and the government has paid into my health plan over the last 20 years, and I have had not used, be allowed to help cover health care expenses of my aging parents. OR, allow for over 65 year old parents to be covered on childrens health plan. I am a health person who has paid into my health plan for as long as I have been a government employee (over 20 years) and I will never use up the dollar value of what the government and I have paid into my health plan. In addition to allowing dependent children to stay on health plan until they are 26, why not also allow for parents to be on health plan starting at their 65th birthday. With a lot of children not leaving home or going back home to leave with their parents it would be a good use of medical $'s to provide true Family Health Coverage.
