The Obama administration says the president's health care law is crucial to ensuring health coverage for young adults — even though major health insurers have announced they will still cover them even if the Supreme Court throws the law out next week.
"The additional 3.1 million young adults with coverage now have valuable coverage with key protections, and only a law can guarantee those protections," said Richard Kronick, deputy assistant secretary for health policy.
"To have that kind of response in such a short period of time is really unprecedented," Mr. Kronick said. "This is extremely clear — that there's been an overwhelming response from young adults to this."
