About this resource
Here's a quick overview of what every young person in foster care should know about accessing resources:
Your rights in foster care
Generally, this is what federal law says about the health care you can expect while in foster care.
Health care for former foster youth to age 26
Former foster youth are eligible for free health care under the Affordable Care Act (ACA). The Affordable Care Act (ACA) requires states to provide youth under 26 with free health care if they were in foster care at age 18. This ensures that former foster youth can access the health care services they need, just like non-foster youth who can stay on their parents' insurance plans until 26.
