Issue Brief 14: Being Uninsured and Underinsured in the U.S.

There are nearly 200 million adults between 19 and 64 living in the U.S. either without health insurance, or without enough health insurance.

In this issue brief, we examine the challenges faced by underinsured and uninsured adults, along with some of the resources available.
