Park City, UT (PRWEB) March 25, 2014
Today, Zane Benefits, the #1 Online Health Benefits Solution, published new information on the affordable care act and it’s impact on the number of uninsured Americans.
According to Zane Benefits’ website, at the end of February, HHS reported 4 million people signed up for health insurance coverage through the marketplaces established under the ACA. With the open enrollment period scheduled to close on March 31, more uninsured will enroll in coverage and it's likely the uninsured rate will continue to fall.
Zane Benefits’ website says that according to Gallup, the overall drop in the uninsured rate could be because of the ACA's individual mandate provision, health insurance marketplaces, and subsidized premiums.
The uninsured rate among 26- to 34-year olds and 35- to 64-year olds continues to decline, now at 26.6 percent and 16.3 percent, respectively. Though the drop in the uninsured rate is among slowest for young adults, experts say young people’s enrollment in the law is crucial to the success of the law. As such, young adults have been a focus of the administration's focus.
