Healthcare reform sends uninsured rate falling

Roughly 9.5 million people have gained health insurance coverage through healthcare reform’s Medicaid expansion, health insurance exchanges and private plans, according to national surveys and enrollment data.

In particular, a new survey from Rand Corporation showed Medicaid accounts for about 4.5 million previously uninsured consumers, reported the Los Angeles Times, which received a copy of the unpublished survey data. Those figures are similar to analyses from Avalere Health, which found up to 3.5 million people had signed up for Medicaid as of January.
