Study: Millions of Young Adults Medicaid Eligible

Young adults make up 52 percent of all those newly eligible for Medicaid, which some states expanded under the Affordable Care Act.

The success of the Affordable Care Act depends in part on young and health individuals signing up for coverage.

Nearly 5.4 million young adults ages 19-34 are currently eligible for Medicaid or will become eligible for Medicaid in January, according to a new report from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation.

The Affordable Care Act gave states the option to obtain federal financial support if they expanded Medicaid coverage to Americans earning less than 138 percent of the federal poverty line.

Young adults make up 52 percent of the total number of people who will be newly eligible for Medicaid under these expansions.
