ACA Extends Coverage for Former Foster Youth

More than 30,000 former foster youth in California are newly eligible for health care coverage, but unfortunately many of them are unaware. One of the hallmarks of the ACA is the option for young adults to stay on their parents’ insurance until age 26. Now, the ACA gives former foster youth the same protections by expanding their Medi-Cal coverage until age 26. Previously former foster youth were only eligible for health care until age 21.
 
There has been a critical need to expand health care coverage for this population as former foster youth are significantly less likely than their peers to have health insurance and often have greater health care needs due to abuse or neglect they experienced in childhood.
