PA Uninsured Rate At New Low

Pennsylvania's uninsured rate has fallen to a new low. Numbers from the U.S. Census Bureau's annual community survey show Pennsylvania's uninsured rate dropped from 5.6 percent in 2016 to 5.5 percent last year which is a new record low. State Insurance Commissioner Jessica Altman says that the national uninsured rate is 8.8 percent, shows Pennsylvania is doing something right. Altman also notes the state's uninsured continues to decline despite efforts at the federal level to undermine the Affordable Care Act.
