Modern Healthcare

Roughly 8.2 million of the 8.6 million uninsured between the ages of 50 to 64 will gain access to health coverage in 2014 under the healthcare overhaul, according to an analysis unveiled by the Commonwealth Fund. About 3.5 million of uninsured baby boomers will be able to get subsidized private insurance, 3.3 million will be able to gain Medicaid coverage and 1.4 million will have access to non-subsidized private insurance, according to the report, Realizing Health Reform’s Potential: Adults Ages 50-64 and the Affordable Care Act of 2010. Left without access to coverage will be about 377,000 undocumented immigrants.
