A Look at Remaining Uninsured Adults as of March 2015

Abstract

  • More than two-thirds of uninsured adults in March 2015 were potentially eligible for financial assistance with insurance coverage under the ACA.
  • Nationwide, about a quarter of uninsured adults had incomes below the federal poverty level and lived in states that have not expanded Medicaid.
  • Many uninsured adults were concerned about the affordability of insurance coverage.  
  • Half of uninsured adults who were potentially eligible for financial assistance had not heard about subsidies or looked for information on health plans in the Marketplace.
  • Uninsured adults face competing demands on family budgets that may preempt purchasing insurance coverage.
