30 to 40 Million Uninsured in 2014 via the use of the Affordable Care Act of 2010

Checking In With Dr. Robert Kocher On Who Might Stay Uninsured In Spite Of The Individual Mandate

By Amita Parashar, KHN Staff Writer
Dec 20, 2010

Excerpts and source follow:

“One of the most contentious aspects of the new health care law has been the “individual mandate,” a requirement that nearly everyone have health insurance by 2014. …”

“But even if the mandate takes effect in three years, experts acknowledge that some people are certain to still be without coverage. … they will fall into a category known as the “residually uninsured” and make up what’s been called the “outlaw market.” Even during the year’s congressional debate, there was much speculation about how big this group might be and whether the result could undermine the push to spread risk and make health coverage more affordable and accessible.”

 

“Q. How did you come up with the figure that 30 million to 40 million people might remain uninsured … ?

A. We built a simulation that allows us to model each county in the country. The model looks at businesses and individuals, coverage flows and changes over time. … The model factors in health conditions, incomes, age and can allow one to make forecasts. … It is difficult to predict how big the residually uninsured market will be since it depends on many factors … Depending on what you believe about these factors leads you to a large range for how many people will be residually uninsured. In some scenarios, that pool may be as large as 30 to 40 million people.

Q. Who are the residually uninsured?

A. There will always be a residual pool of uninsured that includes the following populations: undocumented [foreigners], people between jobs, those who may lose coverage from either changes in income [or from] rolling off of Medicaid. Also, the [people whose employer-based coverage] was dropped but who haven’t yet purchased insurance; those eligible and not enrolled in Medicaid; and those [who have not enrolled in insurance] by choice.
