When I graduated from college in 2007, I was shocked that I had trouble finding good health coverage. I got denied for plan after plan because of a history of migraines, asthma, and minor mental health issues. As if there wasn't enough stress with looking for a job and finding a place to live I had to search and search for a plan that would be affordable and would cover me. I am so very relieved that my younger brother, who is graduating this year, will be able to stay on my parents' plan until he can find his own. I know that even though it was a headache, that I am lucky to not have a gap in my coverage. I am happy about the reform because I know that young adults will find it easier to be covered and to maintain their health.
