"I definitely cannot afford health insurance right now. I’d rather take my chances and use the money for other priorities like rent, car, gas, whatever. If I have to see a doctor, I’ll pay out of pocket or charge it and pay later. But, if I had to go to the hospital I don’t know how it would be paid for."

Recent High School or College Graduate

Are you one of our young adult Alabamians who is uninsured?

  • About 1 in 5 Alabamians between 19 and 24 years of age is uninsured.
  • A little more than 23% of Alabamians between 25 and 34 do not have health insurance.

Thousands of young Alabamians graduate from high school and college every year and take on the challenge of finding a job that provides health benefits they can afford.

Others do not think they need health insurance. They are young and healthy, and they think nothing serious is going to prevent them from working and living independently.

If you are a recent high school or college graduate or the parent of a graduate, you need to seriously consider obtaining health insurance for yourself or your adult child.

Regardless of your age, health insurance is an investment in your own health and future.

There are numerous health care coverage options available for young adults. Take the time to research the best one for you. It may be a little challenging, but your health and financial future are worth it.
