States with the Highest and Lowest Uninsured Rates

From Wallet Hub, Oct 10, 2019 

Having health insurance is vital to the well-being of your family and your wallet. It not only ensures that you have access to the care you need, but it also can significantly reduce your out-of-pocket medical expenses, the leading cause of personal bankruptcy in the U.S.

After the passage of the Affordable Care Act — dubbed “Obamacare” — the uninsured rate for all adult Americans dipped to a historic low. But the uninsured rate is back on the rise. According to recent data from the U.S. Census Bureau, the national uninsured rate for 2018 was 8.5%, compared to 7.9% in 2017.

With the ACA still in place but uninsured rates rising, WalletHub measured the post-Obamacare uninsured rates in each of the 50 states. For an even broader perspective of those rates, we broke the national figures down to categories such as race and income level. In addition, we conducted the same analysis at the city level….

Cities with the Highest and Lowest Uninsured Rates

From Wallet Hub, Oct 10, 2019 

The national uninsured rate rose in 2018 to 8.5% from 7.9% the previous year, according to data from the U.S. Census Bureau. This marked the first year there was an increase since the Affordable Care Act (ACA) took effect. But how widely do the rates differ from city to city?

With the uninsured rate climbing yet the Affordable Care Act remaining in place, WalletHub measured the uninsured rates for 548 U.S. cities and broke them down even further by age, income level and race. In addition, we conducted the same analysis at the state level….
