Health Insurance Coverage and the Affordable Care Act, September 2015


In March 2015, ASPE estimated that 16.4 million uninsured people had gained health insurance coverage as several of the Affordable Care Act’s coverage provisions took effect. Using updated data, ASPE now estimates that 17.6 million uninsured people have gained health insurance coverage. Coverage gains refer to different sources of coverage, including Medicaid, the Health Insurance Marketplace, and individual market coverage; therefore, gains are not limited to Marketplace-eligible individuals.
