50 Million Uninsured: The Faces Behind the Headlines

Almost 50 million Americans lacked health insurance in 2010 — about a million more than in 2009. Who are the uninsured? Why do so many Americans lack coverage? What are the trends in coverage among different segments of the population? What do these trends mean for the health care system and the costs of care? This briefing, co-sponsored by the Alliance for Health Reform and the Kaiser Family Foundation’s Commission on Medicaid and the Uninsured, addressed these questions and more.
