Americans at Risk: One in Three Uninsured
As the recession worsens, America’s businesses and families are feeling
the squeeze of these tough economic times. Unemployment is at its
highest rate in decades, and economic forecasts suggest that troubles
are likely to continue for many months to come. At the same time, the cost of
health coverage continues to rise, and millions of Americans remain uninsured,
with more workers losing their jobs and the health insurance that they rely
on with each passing week.
Families USA examines the number of uninsured Americans, who they are,and how long they are uninsured. We also discuss the major underlying reasons for the growth in the number of uninsured.
