Almost 40 percent of young adults between the ages of 19 and 29 did not have health insurance at some point in 2011, according to a new report from the Commonwealth Fund.

The report also found that more than one-third (36 percent) of young adults had medical bill problems or were currently paying off medical debt. Of those individuals, 43 percent faced serious financial troubles, 32 percent couldn’t make their student loans or tuition payments, 31 percent put off education or career plans, and 28 percent couldn’t afford essentials such as food, heat or rent because of medical bills.
