Which Demographic Has the Most Uninsured?
More than 30 million of the 50 million uninsured are estimated to be eligible for health insurance under the health care reform law upheld by the Supreme Court on Thursday. We took a look at the total number of uninsured Americans broken down by demographic.
Overall, about 9 in 10 eligible Americans will have health insurance, according to the Associated Press. Those who aren't eligible include illegal immigrants and those who choose not to sign up--opting to face the penalties instead.
