The Income Divide in Healthcare | News Brief

A survey of American adults indicates that 57% of those living in families that earn less than 133% of the federal poverty level were uninsured at some point in 2011. Just 12% of those living at 400% of the poverty level were uninsured during the year. Respondents who were uninsured were much less likely to report a regular source of healthcare than those who were insured.
