The government is counting on 2.7 million young Americans to enroll in health care exchanges when they open in October, but can the Obama Administration convince these “young invincibles” to participate?
The numbers are not looking too good right now. According to a few recent studies:
- 1 in 3 young adults are still not familiar with the Affordable Care Act
- Only 1 in 4 young adults knows about the exchanges opening in October,
- And millions of young adults could actually “save” money by foregoing health insurance and paying the penalty.
Despite the challenges, the Obama administration is still trying to convince young people to enroll in exchanges by the end of the year.
