Roni Caryn Rabin
"The number of uninsured adults in the United States continues to rise, with one in four adults under 65 reporting they were without health insurance at some point in the last year, according to a recent report from the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
"About 50 million adults ages 18 to 64 said they were uninsured for at least some period during the previous 12 months, according to the report, which was based on a survey conducted between January and March of this year.
"Among adults in middle-income families those earning two to three times the poverty level, or between $43,000 and $65,000 a year for a family of four one in three adults under 65 was without insurance for some portion of the previous year. Over all, an estimated 59.1 million Americans of all ages had no health insurance for at least part of the year prior to their interview, up from 58.7 million in 2009 and 56.4 million in 2008."
