In a survey that’s been conducted by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) for 50 years, for the first time the percentage of Americans without health insurance has fallen to single digits.
The CDC reported yesterday that the National Health Interview Survey showed 90.8 percent of all Americans as now having health insurance.
In previous years, the rate always topped 10 percent, sometimes reaching as high as 18 percent.
The results are based on surveys conducted between January and March of this year. The CDC plans on releasing an annual report after the end of the year.
A similar January-to-March survey in 2014, after the start of Obamacare, found that 13.1 percent of Americans were uninsured, but the full-year report pegged the number at 11.5 percent.
