The number of Americans without health insurance continues to grow, particularly among adults ages 18 to 64, according to new estimates from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. More than 59 million people in the U.S. lacked insurance for at least part of 2010, up from about 56 million in 2008, according to the CDC. The number of adults who had no health insurance for at least part of the last 12 months grew by roughly 1.1 million per year, and about half were considered middle-income.
