While America's uninsured crisis disproportionately affects lower-income working families, moderate-class Americans are increasingly going without health coverage as well. Two of five working-age Americans with annual incomes between $20,000 and $40,000 were uninsured for at least part of the past year. This represents a dramatic and rapid rise from 2001, when just over one-quarter of this group was uninsured.
