90% of Americans Have Health Coverage, Government Figures Show

Government figures show that about 90% of Americans have health insurance coverage, many of them benefiting from the Affordable Care Act, while independent experts estimate that over 50% of the roughly 30 million uninsured people are eligible for coverage through existing programs. Kaiser Family Foundation President Drew Altman said instead of crafting plans for universal coverage through a public program, leaders should focus on addressing the rising health care costs that affect everyone.
