Health Insurance Coverage in the United States in 2019
The Census Bureau’s new report presents statistics on health insurance coverage in the United States based on information collected in the Current Population Survey Annual Social and Economic Supplement (CPS ASEC) and the American Community Survey (ACS). The survey showed that in 2019, 8 percent, or 26.1 million people, did not have health insurance at any point during the year. The percentage of people with Medicaid coverage decreased to 19.8 percent in 2019, down from 20.5 percent in 2018. Between 2018 and 2019, the percentage of people without health insurance coverage decreased in one state and increased in 19 states. However, all states and the District of Columbia had a lower uninsured rate in 2019 than in 2010.
