Uninsured adults are at least 25 percent more likely to die prematurely than adults who have private insurance. See state-level breakdowns of the 26,100 people between the ages of 25 and 64 who died prematurely due to a lack of health insurance in 2010.

Also, learn why health insurance is so important. For example, the uninsured:

  • are less likely to have a usual source of care outside of the emergency room
  • often go without screenings and preventive care
  • often delay or go without needed medical care
  • pay more for medical care

The Affordable Care Act will help reduce the number of uninsured Americans.
