The Rise in Health Care Coverage and Affordability Since Health Reform Took Effect

Bookmark and Share

New results from the Commonwealth Fund Biennial Health Insurance Survey, 2014, indicate that the ACA’s subsidized insurance options and consumer protections reduced the number of uninsured working-age adults from an estimated 37 million people, or 20 percent of the population, in 2010 to 29 million, or 16 percent, by the second half of 2014. Conducted from July to December 2014, for the first time since it began in 2001, the survey also finds declines in the number of people who report cost-related access problems and medical-related financial difficulties.
