Consider the facts.
To ensure adequate and affordable health insurance coverage for adolescents and young adults, we aim to:
- Participate in health coalitions to represent the interests of adolescents and young adults in proposed health insurance reforms related to the Affordable Health Care Act, Medicaid, and the Children Health Insurance Program (CHIP).
- Develop policy recommendations to address needed improvements in access to insurance coverage for poor and near-poor adolescents and young adults and for those with chronic physical, mental, and intellectual/developmental conditions.
- Partner with state Medicaid and CHIP programs to ensure a planned transition for young adults losing public insurance eligibility at age 18 or 21.
