Health Insurance Awareness

Nearly 16 million Americans between the ages of 19 and 29 are uninsured, but more than 80 percent of them could be in October.  However, a new survey by the Commonwealth Fund found less than 20 percent of the low and middle income young adults who will be eligible for subsidized health insurance or Medicaid are aware of the programs.  The survey also found more than half the 15 million young adults covered by their parents’ insurance wouldn’t have been eligible without the Affordable Care Act.
