1 in 6 Americans don't have Health Insurance – #TakeCareChat

Affordable health care act

Health insurance may not be the sexiest of topics, but it is one that we really need to address. Did you know that 1 in 6 Americans are going without health insurance? That number is even higher for millennials. In fact, 1 out of 4 young adults is currently uninsured.

Today, Get Covered America @GetCoveredUS hosted at Twitter Chat #TakeCareChat to talk about the Affordable Care Act #ACA and how it can benefit Millennials.

Some things that Millennials should consider:

  1. What happens if you are sick or injured and make a trip to the emergency room. Are you aware of the cost of a trip to the emergency room or that the average cost for an over night stay is $10,000!!
  2. Did you know that more than half of all uninsured Americans could qualify for plans under $100 per month? The rate drops to under $50 per month for almost half of all of us under 35!
  3. Did you know that mental health and preventative care are core features of the Affordable Care Act?

GET IN THE KNOW: enroll for health insurance at by March 31, 2014!!
