Biggest Drop In Uninsured Rates?! Thanks, ObamaCare



Sarah Kliff: Under Obamacare, America’s Uninsured Rate Has Fallen 35 Percent

14.1 million Americans have gained health plans since Obamacare’s coverage expansion began in 2014.
An additional 2.3 million young adults gained coverage between 2010 and 2013 — after Obamacare began requiring employer plans to offer dependent coverage through age 26. Federal officials say this is the largest drop in the uninsured rate since 1965, when Medicare and Medicaid began.

A new report from Health and Human Services finds that the uninsured rate has fallen from 20.3 percent prior to the health-care law down to 13.2 percent at the start of 2015. This is a 7.1 percentage-point decrease in the uninsured rate — or, to put it another way, a 35-percent decline in the number of Americans who lack insurance coverage. “Nothing since the implementation of Medicare and Medicaid has come close to this kind of change,” says Richard Frank, assistant secretary for evaluation and planning at Health and Human Services.

    SOS Kerry is remaining in Vienna and POTUS is home.
    I guess the Cuba announcement tomorrow will be videotape?
    Unless the reporting that it will be POTUS and SOS making the announcement in the morning is mistaken.
    Anybody here know anything about this?

    Cuba has successfully eliminated mother-to-child transmission of both HIV and syphilis, the World Health Organization (WHO) says.

    The head of the WHO, Dr Margaret Chan, called it one of the greatest public health achievements possible.

    It follows years of efforts to give pregnant women early access to prenatal care, testing and drugs to stop these diseases passing from mother to child.

    The WHO hopes other countries will be able to achieve the same.


    This is a BFD.
