Bad news comes to those without health insurance. Individuals without private medical insurance are more likely to die, according to a new study, “Health Insurance and Mortality in US Adults,” published in the September issue of the American Journal of Public Health. In fact, they have a 40% higher risk of mortality when compared to people who have insurance, said researchers at The University of Washington School of Medicine in Seattle, and the Cambridge Health Alliance/Harvard Medical School in Boston.
