HHS study: Health law guarantees stable coverage for young Americans

"The President's health law gives hard working, middle-class families the security they deserve and health insurance to millions of young people," Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius said in a statement accompanying the report. "Thanks to health reform, more young adults have insurance and parents have peace of mind knowing that their sons and daughters will be able to get the health care they need if they get sick or are in an accident.'

Obama himself is keeping a low profile ahead of the law's second anniversary on Friday. Democrats and their allies, however, are celebrating throughout the week, with a focus on the law's provisions for young adults on Wednesday.

Two years after passage, the law remains deeply divisive among Americans. Some individual provisions fare better in public polling, however, including coverage for young adults.
