The number of uninsured Americans in every state
Millions of Americans receive their healthcare and health insurance through an employer-based plan; however more than 27 million Americans remain uninsured and experts predict another 30 million could lose their health insurance because of the Covid-19 pandemic.

Harmony Healthcare IT recently performed a major analysis of health insurance data from every state as well as the most populous metro areas in the country to find out where the most uninsured Americans live today.

Here’s what they found:
  • Millennials are the demographic with the highest percentage of uninsured Americans with more than 6 million millennials between the age of 26 and 34 who are currently without health insurance. 
  • Among the 17 states with the highest percentage of uninsured residents (10% or more), 11 are located in the South or the Southwest region of the country. 
  • Texas is home to the highest percentage of uninsured residents with more than 5 million Texans or 18% of population of Texas without health insurance. 
  • In terms of states with the most insured residents, Massachusetts ranks #1 with only 3% of its population uninsured. Massachusetts is followed by Vermont (4%), Hawaii (4%), Rhode Island (4%) and Minnesota (4%).

Uninsured Millennials

As mentioned above, Millennials are the top demographic nationwide when it comes to people without health insurance. Young Americans are the demographic most impacted by not having health insurance. Recent data shows that a big reason that many Millennials choose not to have health insurance is that they believe they are healthy and do not want to pay the high premiums that come with health insurance. Many also choose to not have health insurance after the affordable health care mandate was changed that fined Americans for not having health insurance. With this mandate no longer in place, many young people decided to ditch their health insurance plans in an effort to save money.
