Affordable Care Act's Important Demographic

Posted: Updated:

(WLNS) - Although millions of Americans have signed up for the Affordable Care Act, the federal government and states running their own exchanges have launched marketing efforts to reach young, healthy adults.

But the message may not be getting through.

A recent poll of about 2,000 young adults through Harvard's Institute of Politics shows about 40 percent of people between 18 and 29 years old are still on the fence about signing up.

The government says these young adults are the key to the program's success.
