Uninsured Rate for Young Adults Still Down From Past

The percentage of young adults in the U.S. who lack health insurance began to decline at the end of 2010, when the healthcare law provision allowing those up to age 25 to stay on their parents’ plans went into effect, and has remained lower since. … The uninsured rate for 26- to 64-year-olds, though, has been rising since 2009, now at 19.6%. It was in the 15% range during most of 2008. [cont.]
