Effect of ACA: Fewer Uninsured Adults

Effect of the ACA: fewer Uninsured Adults

In March 2014 the national uninsurance rate for nonelderly adults was 15.2%, a drop of 2.7 percentage points since September 2013, the month before ACA open enrollment began. This represents a gain in coverage for about 5.4 million adults. The data is from the Urban Institute’s Health Reform Monitoring Survey.
