Are you on the younger side of the age equation—under 30? Then, as a young buck get ready to pay more for your health care, thanks to Obamacare.

According to a new study conducted by members of the American Academy of Actuaries, adults under the age of 30 will find their insurance premiums rise by more than 40 percent under health care reform. Happy New Year, youngsters!

How do these folks then save money on health care? The premiums for coverage are only one aspect of paying for health care. You can find ways to source cheaper insurance, such as working with brokers and agents, searching online insurance tools and websites, and talking to friends about their coverage. Paying for your benefits is definitely going to cost more if you are under 30, but the cost of care is also going up, and you need to find ways to control those expenses as well.
