Analysts at a group that supports the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010 (PPACA) say the law may be helping a large number of young adults get and keep high-quality health coverage.

About 14 million young adults ages 19 to 25 joined or stayed on their parents' health plans from November 2010 to November 2011, and about 48% of those young adults may have gained access to that coverage as a result of a PPACA provision, the analysts say in a commentary released by the Commonwealth Fund, New York.
