Women's Health Week: How Obamacare Benefits Young Americans
It's National Women's Health Week, and here at Blog for Choice, we're sharing stories about how Obamacare helps women get quality, affordable health care.
The Affordable Care Act, a.k.a. Obamacare, allows young Americans to stay on their parents' health-insurance plan until age 26. That's great news for Susan in Florida and her daughter:
My daughter is currently under my husband's insurance, even though she's almost 25. She was a college student for six years and started working on a part-time basis, only to receive medical benefits whenever she is put on to full time. With her medical problems, the Affordable Care Act has been a blessing!
Obamacare truly is a blessing for Susan's daughter and other young people.
(As an aside, I turned 26 on Saturday. While I've got health insurance through NARAL Pro-Choice America now, there was a time after college when I did rely on my parents' health-insurance plan--and I needed it.)
Three cheers for Obamacare!
