Where Is The Growth in the Uninsured Population Coming From?

The Kaiser Commission on Medicaid and the Uninsured co-sponsored a policy briefing today to discuss the dynamics of the uninsured population in America. In 2001, the uninsured population grew by 1.4 million people. To increase understanding of who these people are and answer the question of whether the uninsured problem was shifting to higher-income Americans, findings from two new KCMU reports were presented. You may also view background materials on the uninsured and a webcast of the policy briefing.
