Medicaid for me, though it begins later in this state. Don't have parent's insurance as an option and not eligible for subsidies.
I have a family member that is autistic but not disabled enough to get assistance because of it . He is taking college very slowly because he has to. Without ACA he would not be covered because he would not achieve the proper number of college units to stay on the parents health care plan. On top of that a pre-existing condition would screw him over for private insurance.
So coverage on a parents plan is not a foregone conclusion.
Insured through my employer and while the cost has increased significantly over the past few years and benefits it's still better than what many have and well above the ACA minimums.
So I'm staying put.

Autism Fact Sheet - National Autism Association
There are state laws that govern autism so depending on what state your family member resides, there still may be coverage available.
Autism and Insurance Coverage State Laws
The chances are much higher there is some type of coverage available for those with autism than not.
“I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.
