Young adults amass a quarter of the people signing up for Obamacare. The Obama Administration expects a large number of young adults to join in the month of March. " The basic reason why everyone is so focusedon you g adults signing up for coverage is because it's presumed they are healthier and less costly to insurers".

The Obama Administration believes that it would not be a good idea for the number of women signing up for Obamacare to be higher than the number of men. This is because women use more health services than men. Another big thong is that "Insurers want to have a good share of younger people, not ones who will heavily use their policies".

" having health insurance means you'll have free access to preventive services, yearly checkups, and will be guaranteed treatment". Only 3% of young adults won't qualify for cost assistance when they go to purchase private insurance. 17.8 million young adults "between ages 18 and 35" are unisured.

Because of the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare), insurance companies are "not required to cover adult children over the age of 18". The Affordable Care Act eliminates all lifetime caps, which means that no ones's insurance is limited to a certain amount. One of the best things about Obamacare is that your work salary defines how much you have to pay, "82% of unemployed Americans will be eligible for free and low cost insurance".

" The vast majority of young adults wont see their premiums rise under Obamacare". Young people are going to have to pay higher premiums "to the tune of 60 or even 80% higher than current rates". But 'almost half of young adults receive coverage through there employers".
Zack Brown's comment, March 4, 2014 8:10 AM
"The only young Americans who will have to pay higher premiums are those who make over $28725, yet dont have insurance through their employer". Studies show that young adults ranging from 21 to 27 "will either have public health insurance or receive subsidies to buy coverage on a market place, and two-thirds of the remaining pool are under age 26 and can stay on their parents' insurance (also thanks to Obamacare)". "97% of young Americans will receive new health coverage, cheaper coverage, or not see their health insurance change at all'.
