College students are being heavily impacted. Schools have long offered bare bones coverage, which could be of some value for students.
In another article I read, the govt says that these students can now stay on their parents' insurance till age 26. However, even now, kids can stay on their parents' insurance while full-time students until 21 ... so if the kids who need this kind of coverage had parents who already had insurance, they really wouldn't need this coverage to begin with. It's likely that the kids in some of these small schools or community colleges don't have parents with coverage; maybe don't even have parents?
