Uninsured Individuals And Families
People without health insurance have poor access to health care, as they are less likely to seek preventative care and services for health problems. Those without insurance cite a range of reasons, including its high costs and not having access to any insurance through work. With assistance in accessing cost-effective insurance and other benefits, many more individuals can now improve their health care options.
