Highlights and Hazards: What Do the Current Health Care Reform Bills Do for Adolescents & Young Adults (November 2009)

The Center for Adolescent Health & the Law, in collaboration with the National Adolescent Health Information and Innovation Center (NAHIIC) at the University of California, San Francisco, has produced Highlights and Hazards: What Do the Current Health Care Reform Bills Do for Adolescents & Young Adults?

This fact sheet provides an overview of measures in the three health bills that are currently in play in the U.S. Congress that are particularly noteworthy for adolescents and young adults. H.R. 3962, the Senate Finance bill, and the Senate HELP bill are analyzed to identify “highlights” – provisions that would be particularly beneficial for this important and often neglected age group – and “hazards” – provisions that could be harmful to these young people.
