CDC Says Fewer Americans Are Without Health Insurance

It might be a while before we know the overall impact of the Affordable Care Act. But, as of now, Obamacare seems to be accomplishing at least one of its goals: reducing the number of Americans without health insurance.

The National Health Interview Survey by the CDC says, in the first quarter of this year, the number of uninsured Americans dropped by 3.8 million. And that number will likely grow when second-quarter results come in.

In an unrelated development, more than 100,000 immigrants will lose their coverage at the end of the month because they didn’t provide documentation proving their citizenship or legal status.
