College student Francois Louis, 20, poses for a photo in Davie, Fla. Louis can’t remember the last time he went to the doctor and gets by on over the counter medication or health remedies whenever he’s sick. He’d love to be able to go to the doctor and have a check-up, but says it’s just too expensive on his salary of less than $15,000 a year. For millions of unemployed and underemployed 20-somethings, many who are still living at home in the wake of a recession, health care has been out of reach.
