Health Insurance & Affordable Care Act

Census Bureau Report Shows Slight Increase in Uninsured in 2008

More Americans Have No Health Insurance

Job-Based Health Insurance Declines continued...

The Census report shows about 20% of the uninsured are in households making $75,000 or more.

"Some of these individuals have health conditions that may mean insurers won't cover them," Custer says. "Some may work for small firms or be self-employed.’" And some, he added, simply may choose not to obtain coverage.

Another 20% of uninsured are not citizens, the report states, though there is no breakdown on whether they are legal or illegal immigrants.

Cunningham says the health insurance problem won't get better on its own, even when the economy improves.

The cost of health insurance and the cost of medical care, he says, are driving the increase in the uninsured.
