17 Million Young Adults Would Lose Insurance If Health Law Is Struck Down

Consumer group Young Invincibles has filed a legal brief defending the minimum coverage provision of the Affordable Care Act, arguing that should the Supreme Court declare President Obama’s health reform law unconstitutional, over 17 million young Americans stand to lose their health care coverage. The law has already extended insurance to 2.5 million Americans as a result of a provision which allows adults to stay on their parents’ plans until the age of 26. — Fatima Najiy
