Washington Post

More than 3 million young people have gained health insurance since the Affordable Care Act became law three years ago, allowing young adults to stay on their parents’ health insurance until age 26.

Starting next year, young adults will have more options for health insurance. But despite the expanded choices, some may continue to face problems commonly associated with their age group: coverage for mental health issues, substance abuse and maternity care.
