What the ACA at 1 Does for Me at 21

Did you know that the Affordable Care Act (ACA) passed by Congress a year ago greatly benefits all young Americans? The bill provides young people — like me — with a means of obtaining affordable and necessary health care coverage.

As a 21-year-old attempting to figure out what it is I might want to do with my life, I can most certainly appreciate the options I now have because of this monumental legislation. Currently I am both a college student and part-time intern and therefore do not have any job-based insurance. The ACA allows me to stay covered on my parents plan up until the age of 26 when I will hopefully be finished with graduate school, providing me with the ability to continue my education without changing my current coverage.

But even if I couldn't be covered under my parent's insurance plan and if I had been previously denied coverage, I would still be able to get coverage now through a Pre-Existing Condition Insurance Plan. The ACA created this temporary source of health insurance for uninsured people with pre-existing conditions.

On its first anniversary, I am grateful for the ACA and all it does not only for me and other young Americans but also for the country as a whole. It is important that this law stays strong in the face of challenges so that it can continue to provide the means for every American to obtain the proper health care.
