Young adults might need extra help deciphering insurance terms

A University of Pennsylvania study involving about 30 college-educated adults ages 19 through 30 found low levels of knowledge about common health insurance terminology. Half could not explain what a deductible is, 75% could not explain co-insurance, and most did not know how much a health plan costs nor that they might be eligible for subsidies. An advocacy group called Young Invincibles is testing ideas to get young adults more interested in health insurance, such as sponsoring concerts, conducting Twitter chats and developing a smartphone application to assist with enrollment.
