Uninsured Rate Remains Higher For Men
KQED Radio

Men remain less likely than women to have health insurance in the U.S., despite drops in the overall number of uninsured since the Affordable Care Act, new research shows.

In October 2013, before the health reform expansion, 21.8 percent of men were uninsured. But by March of this year, only 15.2 percent were.

Comparatively, 18.9 percent of women were uninsured two years ago, but that percentage declined to 11.2 this year.
