This survey finds that one of four working-age adults ages 19 to 64, some 38 million people, either were uninsured or had been uninsured at some point during the past year. The survey also found that adults who had even a relatively brief spell without insurance—as little as a few months—were just as likely as the long-term uninsured to face problems accessing health care or paying medical bills.
