College graduates concerned about keeping healthcare

(WFLX) - Recent college grads are not only worried about getting jobs, but they are also concerned about keeping healthcare. Right now, 20 percent of college students in America are uninsured.

For many students, paying out of their pockets isn't an option because it's so expensive. Under the new health care bill, recent grads will be able to stay on their parents plans until they are 26. But, that hasn't gone into effect yet, leaving parents worried.

"You never know what is going to happen if anything is going to happen. It's like you're living on edge."

The part of the health care plan that involves students staying on their parents plans doesn't kick in until January 1.
