Spotlight on Low-Income Uninsured Young Adults: Causes and Consequences

Abstract

This brief is the latest in a series using data from the 2005 Kaiser Low-Income Coverage and Access Survey to examine health coverage, access, and financial burdens associated with health care for young adults ages 19 to 29 in low-income families. The findings demonstrate that many low-income uninsured young adults experience problems gaining access to needed health care, with adverse consequences for both their health and financial well-being.
