Study: Rate of Uninsured Women Fell to Less Than 14% in 2014 Under the ACA
The percentage of women of reproductive age who lacked health insurance dropped since the introduction of the Affordable Care Act, according to a study released Tuesday by the Guttmacher Institute. According to the study, the percentage of uninsured women declined from 17.9% in 2013 to 13.9% in 2014. The drop was largely driven by an increase in the number of reproductive-age women insured through Medicaid.
