More Working People Go Without Health Coverage as Insurance Costs Outpace Income
Date:3/24/2009

uninsured residents, greater costs for workers while their incomes are flat, and significant erosion of private coverage. The report was prepared by the State Health Access Data Assistance Center (SHADAC) at the University of Minnesota. Researchers averaged data from the U.S. Census Bureau from 1994-1996 and compared it with average figures from 2006-2007. The report shows:

  • More Americans are uninsured. Nationwide, the total number of uninsured has increased by nearly 9 million, to 45.7 million. Across the U.S., 22 percent of men are uninsured, up from 19 percent; 18 percent of women are uninsured, up from 16 percent.

  • More working people are uninsured. Nationwide, the number of working uninsured adults has increased by more than 6 million, to 26.9 million. Currently, nearly one in five working adults (18 percent) is uninsured.

  • More kids have insurance. Nationwide, the rate of uninsured kids has fallen by 13 percent, to 9.2 million, which experts attribute to more children being covered by government insurance programs like Medicaid and the Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP).

  • Fewer people have private health insurance. Nationwide, the percentage of nonelderly people who have private insurance has dropped to 67 percent, down from 73 percent. Alaska, North Carolina, Utah, Vermont, and Virginia have all seen the percentage of privately insured residents erode by 10 percent or more.

  • Workers' insurance costs have risen far faster than incomes. Average costs for an individual insurance policy have increased 61 percent - from $2,560 in 1996 to $4,118 in 2006. Nationwide, the amount that employees pay for an individual policy has increased 7
