The number of uninsured Americans declined by an additional 4 million in 2015, two years after the major insurance reforms of the Affordable Care Act took effect, according to a recent U.S. Census Bureau survey of 94,000 adults. In a new To the Point post, The Commonwealth Fund’s Sara R. Collins, Munira Gunja, and Sophie Beutel discuss the findings, including the drop in the U.S. uninsured rate from 13.3 percent in 2013 to 9.1 percent in 2015. Uninsured rates declined across all age groups, with adults 19 to 25 experiencing the biggest one-year drop.
