This Data Point examines new Health Interview Survey data to assess recent changes in coverage, finding that the uninsured rate declined throughout 2021 and early 2022 – reaching a historic low of 8.0% by the first quarter of 2022. This reflects 5.2 million people gaining coverage since 2020. The report also examines data from the American Community Survey to assess coverage changes among low-income adults in states with recent Medicaid expansions.
