Young Adults Are More Likely To Lack Health Coverage

Children are often covered by a parent's health plan or by public health insurance such as the Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP). But young adults generally lose eligibility for CHIP at age 19 and for coverage under a parent's health plan at age 26. Before they transition into employer-sponsored health plans or buy private health insurance, young adults are more likely to be uninsured than other age groups.
