Graduating students have more health coverage options than ever before
Before the Affordable Care Act became law, graduating college many times meant leaving behind not only the classroom but also dependable health coverage. Family health insurance plans often stopped covering dependent children once they left school.
As a result of the ACA, most young adults can now remain on their parents’ plan until age 26. Now we just need to let them know their health insurance options post-commencement.
Today, the Young Invincibles re-launched an updated version of its Health Care Toolkit in anticipation of all the 2012 graduates who will have questions about health coverage. The toolkit is an easy-to-use resource for young adults and their families about how they can find insurance coverage, and what they need to know about the revised health care law.
It is important for young adults and their families to have the resources they need to evaluate the best health insurance options. The Health Care Toolkit is a great resource for ensuring more young adults are aware of their options and enrolled in health coverage after graduation.
