It wasn't Medicare that got taken away; it was Medicaid. Medicare is for those age 65 or older or for those under 65 who are disabled or with certain health conditions. Medicare does not get "taken away" when you turn 18. Medicaid is welfare coverage based on low income. It can and will be taken away when you turn 18 or when your family starts making too much money to qualify. You cannot buy insurance until you turn 18 because you cannot enter into a legal contract. Your parents or guardians must purchase the plan for you. And since it is now the law that you must have insurance they can just add you to their policy.
