One in four Millennials believe they’re healthy enough to forego having health insurance

Thanks, ObamacareEven though it’s going to be forced on them thanks to Obamacare, one in four young Americans believe that “they are healthy enough to go without health insurance.”

According to the June 2013 Kaiser Health Tracking Poll, about 25 percent of adults between 18 and 30 believe they’re healthy enough to forego health insurance. Approximately 35 percent of young adults feel that health insurance isn’t “worth the money it costs” as well. In comparison, only 11 percent of adults of all ages believe they’re healthy enough to go without health insurance. 

None of this matters, however, as Millennials will be forced to buy health insurance under Obamacare.

The study also found that more than 70 percent of young Americans believe having health insurance is “very important” and something that they need.

Surprisingly, adults 18-25 were more likely to say that having health insurance was important to them than those aged 26-30. Under Obamacare adults under the age of 26 are able to stay on their parent’s insurance plans regardless of their situation.

Nonetheless, these numbers show that Millennials are still not completely on-board with President Obama’s Patient Protection and Affordable Care law.

Nor are they the only ones worried about the law’s implementation in 2014. A CNN poll released last month found that 54 percent of Americans do not support the president’s healthcare law – the highest it’s been since November of 2011.
