For Grads and Other Young Adults: New Health Benefits

Education (ED) Secretary Arne Duncan and Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Kathleen Sebelius launched a new initiative to help educate graduating college and university seniors about their new health insurance options under the Affordable Care Act. As a result of the new health care reform law, many young adults will be eligible to remain on their parent's health insurance plan until their 26th birthday. The Secretaries have sent letters to college and university presidents as well as student body presidents encouraging them to help spread that information to college students. The letter outlined several ways university officials and student leaders can reach out to graduating students.
