Published on May 30, 2019
Congratulations, graduates! As you set out on your next life adventure, you may have several options for health coverage.
3 ways young adults can get health insurance
- Under a parent’s plan: If your parent’s health insurance plan covers dependents, you can usually be added to their plan and stay on it until you turn 26. Learn more about getting on a parent’s plan.
- Through Medicaid, if you qualify: If you’re working part time, starting a business, or otherwise are not making much money, you may qualify for Medicaid. If eligible, coverage can start right away, any time of year.
