Provisions of the Affordable Care Act are helping millions of young Americans, who would not otherwise be covered, receive critical health care benefits.
About 2.5 million young adults have already gained coverage under the ACA between June 2010 and June 2011.
If the Supreme Court upholds the Affordable Care Act, more than 80 percent of the 14.8
million uninsured 19- to 29-year-olds would gain subsidized coverage by 2014.
WHY WE SHOULD CARE
Young adults have one of the biggest stakes in the pending U.S. Supreme Court ruling that will ultimately decide the fate of President Obama’s health care law.
OUR TIME OPINION
Providing health care coverage for young adults on their parents’ plans until age 26 via the Affordable Care Act is a wildly popular provision that most Americans support.
