Only about 3% of uninsured young adults who will buy private health insurance won’t qualify for cost assistance. Other uninsured young people will simply get their insurance through work due to the 2015 employer plan, or stay on their parents’ health plans.

6 in 10 young adults will qualify for for coverage that costs $100 or less a month. ObamaCare offers young people cheaper health insurance due to cost-assistance through their State’s health insurance marketplace.
