Obamacare cut number of uninsured by 7 million: Commonwealth Fund – Modern Healthcare

The number of uninsured, working-age Americans has decreased by 7 million since full implementation of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, according to survey data released Thursday by the Commonwealth Fund. The number is lower than other recent estimates, which put the total in the 10 million range.

Roughly 29 million adults ages 19 to 64 lacked insurance last year, down from 36 million in 2012, a 19% drop, the fund reported.

The rate of uninsured adults dipped from 19% in 2012, the last time the Commonwealth survey was conducted, to 16% last year.
