Measured by the adoption rate across young Americans we could count ‘Obamacare’ among the most popular laws in the US History. But they should think twice if they should.

According to a study issued last fall, uninsurance rates across America’s young adults – one of chronically uninsured groups in the US – dropped without precedent from 33.9% to 27.9% in just one year. Analysts concluded for various reasons, the positive development have to be attributed to the somewhat controversial Affordable Care Act, sometimes also referred to as “Obamacare”.
In short, the new law permits young adults to stay on their parents’ health insurance until the age of 26.

“But this is not always a good option” explains Steven, project manager at HealthInsuranceQuotes.me. “At a first glance, it seems as much convenient as affordable for young adults to stay with their family’s health insurance. But as we interviewed insurers we learned that in various cases there are much better options available”.

The team interviewed various insurers. Especially Kelly Brooke, Marketing Product Director for Cigna and Thomas Vincz, Manager of Public Relations for Horizon Blue Cross Blue Shield of New Jersey have been of great help for the final guide.

“Measured by the adoption rate across young Americans we could count ‘Obamacare’ among the most popular laws in the US History. But they should think twice if they should. It can really pay off for all involved to do the math before embarking on a new trend”, concludes Steven.
