According to the Wall Street Journal, young adults who enter the working world are unclear about what coverage they should purchase for their healthcare needs. "Graduates are entering the real world without a sense of what to look for in a health plan and how to find coverage that is right for their needs," said Richard A. Collins, chief executive of UnitedHealth's Golden Rule Insurance Co.
The online poll of 1,000 18- to 21-year-olds found that 67% of young adults haven't made plans for health-insurance coverage after they leave school, even though 82% see health insurance as a necessity. The poll was conducted last month by UnitedHealth.
