More than 45 million people in the U.S. had no health insurance in 2012, and the number of people who’d spent at least part of the previous year uninsured approached 58 million. That’s according to a new report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), which also noted that when the data was gathered, more than 34 million people had been uninsured for more than a year.
