NBC News

Newly released federal data show just 28.3 percent of adult Hispanics lacked health insurance in the first three months of the year.

The National Center for Health Statistics reported that Hispanic adults had the greatest percentage point decrease in the uninsured rate between 2013, when the uninsured rate was 40.6 percent, and the first three months of this year, 28.3 percent.

That drop has helped contribute to news that in this year’s first three months nine of every 10 American adults had health insurance.
