The young and the restless…

Aurelio Rojas in the Sacramento Bee has a terrific story about the young and uninsured, which Robert in Monterey at Calitics comments on extensively.

As we stated on this blog previously and in the article, twentysomethings are the biggest slice of the uninsured, but’s it not because they don’t want coverage: it’s that they are more likely to be low-income, to work at jobs that don’t provide coverage, to not be eligible for public programs. When offered coverage, they take it up at similar rates as other age groups.

The question is whether we can offer coverage that is affordable, available, and administratively simple.

Health Access California promotes quality, affordable health care for all Californians.
