Only a quarter of those enrolled in ACA coverage under the age of 35, HHS report says

Fewer than a quarter of those who enrolled in Affordable Care Act health plans came in the coveted 18-34 age range, Jan. 13 Health and Human Services statistics say. That’s well below the 40 percent target President Obama wanted to hit. The target is an important one because more young people enrolled means more healthy people, who premiums are being counted on to balance out claims made by higher-risk older individuals.
