More People Insured in 2007

Health insurance coverage is on the rise. Fewer United States citizens were without health insurance in 2007, according to the Census Bureau. The number of uninsured people dropped due to government sponsored health insurance for children. In 2006 47 million people went without insurance, while in 2007 45.7 million went without coverage. 

Many experts speculated that the number of uninsured would rise due to unemployment and declining coverage from employers. However, the government programs have helped people who could not afford health insurance on their own.

This is definitely good news, especially for those who can't afford such high insurance premiums. Hopefully when the Census Bureau is taken again, the count will be dramatically lower of the power who went without coverage.

Thanks for sharing this bith of information.
