No Health Coverage for 41 Million

JAMA. 2014;312(19):1962. doi:10.1001/jama.2014.14766.

In the first 3 months of 2014, 13.1% of the US population—41 million people—lacked health insurance, according to early 2014 estimates from the National Center for Health Statistics. Children and teens as old as 17 years had the lowest uninsured rate at 6.6%, while adults younger than 65 years were 3 times more likely to be uninsured (15.2%) than children. Almost 10% of the population were uninsured for more than a year.

The report, which was based on the 2014 National Health Interview Survey, found that the number of uninsured adults decreased from 20.4% in 2013 to 18.4% during the first quarter of 2014. Young adults aged 19 to 25 years showed the largest decrease: 26.5% were uninsured in 2013 compared with 20.9% during January through March 2014. This group also reported the biggest decline among those who were uninsured for at least a year, from 19.8% in 2013 to 14.9% in 2014. There was no change in uninsured children, whose coverage rates have remained stable since 2011.
