Modern Healthcare

Among Americans who purchased health insurance through the Obamacare exchanges, the percentage of those who were previously uninsured may be twice as high as earlier estimates indicated, according to survey results released today by the Henry J. Kaiser Family Foundation.

Nearly six in 10 people who obtained insurance in the new marketplaces were uninsured just prior to buying coverage, Kaiser reported, with the majority having been uninsured for at least two years. And nearly half of that group had gone without insurance coverage for at least five years.
