Lack of Health Insurance is Fast Becoming an All-American Problem

Not only is there a heavy price to pay for the uninsured, there is also a large cost to the rest of us when two out of five Americans (working) have no coverage for at least part of the year. Commonwealth Fund report indicates that a majority of uninsured people with a chronic condition skip or go without necessary medication. The result is they get sicker sooner than the insured and twice as many of them wind up in a hospital, burdening themselves and the entire health system with costs that didn't have to happen.
