Uninsured in Pennsylvania over one million
Philadelphia Inquirer, January 30, 2009
More than one million Pennsylvanians lack health insurance, according to a state survey conducted by the Insurance Department. The results reflect a less than 1% increase over estimates reported in 2004. Officials cautioned that the number of uninsured residents is likely to be even higher given the deteriorating employment situation. Of those without coverage, 880,000 were adults, and 140,000 were children.
