Over 45 Million Americans Now Lack Health Insurance
Date:12/16/2009

About 8 percent of children are uninsured, government report finds

WEDNESDAY, Dec. 16 (HealthDay News) -- In the first six months of this year, 45.4 million Americans of all ages -- or 15.1 percent of the population -- had no health insurance, according to new National Health Interview Survey statistics released Wednesday.

In addition, 58.4 million (19.4 percent) people of all ages had been uninsured for at least part of the year prior to the interview, and 31.9 million (10.6 percent) had been uninsured for more than a year at the time of interview, according to a report from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's National Center for Health Statistics.

The findings are from data analyses of almost 32,700 respondents. NHIS data, collected since 1957, is widely used to monitor health trends.

Among the other results from January to June:

  • The percentage of children under age 18 without insurance at the time of interview was 8.2 percent.
  • Among adults up to 64 years old, 60.6 percent of those who were unemployed had been uninsured for at least part of the past year, and 21.8 percent of those who had jobs had gone without insurance. Also, 32.9 percent of unemployed adults and 13.3 percent of employed adults in this age group had been without insurance for more than one year.
  • Among those under age 65 with private health insurance, 22.7 percent were enrolled in a high deductible health plan (HDHP), including 6.4 percent who were enrolled in a consumer-directed health plan (CDHP).
  • Nearly 50 percent of those with a private plan obtained by means other than through an employer were in a HDHP, and about 20 percent of those with a private plan were in a family with a flexible spending account (FSA) for medical expenses.
  • At the time of interview, 12.3 percent of poor children and 11.6 percent of near-poor children didn't have insurance.
