Young People Speak Out Regarding Health Care System

In a recent article regarding young people and the health care system it stated, “As the health care debate winds its way through Congress, everyone can agree on at least this much: Bringing more young adults into the health care system would balance out the costs for everyone else because the young use the least amount of care.” Young people are speaking out though on the questions such as, “whether young people should be required to to buy insurance or whether they should be allowed to stay on their parents’ insurance plans into their mid-20s.”

A third of young Americans from age 19-29 are uninsured, though they may be required to buy insurance if a health overhaul bill passes with a mandate that everyone carry insurance.

“Supporters of reform plans say young Americans will be among the biggest beneficiaries of changes that promise to bring more affordable health insurance options to the individual market. Health care is of particular interest to college students who worry about their post-graduation job prospects – and their ability to get employer-sponsored health care – in this troubled economy, supporters say.” But some remain skeptical of paying into a system they don’t use.” For more information read the full article by clicking here and please take some time to visit our new virtual interactive website at
