CDC: Progress Reducing Uninsured Rate Threatens to Stall – ABC News

With deep divisions over President Barack Obama’s health care law reappearing in the election’s final days, a government report shows that progress in reducing the number of uninsured Americans has slowed to a crawl.The study released Thursday by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention suggests the 2010 law may be reaching a limit to its effectiveness.The CDC said the number of uninsured people dipped by only 200,000 between 2015 and the first six months of this year, which it called “a nonsignificant difference.” The findings come from the National Health Interview Survey, which has queried more than 48,000 people so far this year.
