Modern Healthcare

Underlining a change across the nation, nearly 9 out of 10 adults now say they have health insurance, according to an extensive survey released Monday.

As recently as 2013, slightly more than 8 out of 10 had coverage.

Whether the new number from the Gallup-Healthways Well-Being Index turns out to be a high-water mark for President Barack Obama’s healthcare law, or a milestone on the path toward his goal of getting virtually all U.S. residents covered, remains to be seen.
