As COVID-Related Policies Expire, Health Coverage May Reshuffle

The Congressional Budget Office estimated that in 2023, 248 million people who are younger than 65 will have health insurance coverage, with over 57% covered through employment-based health plans. As COVID-era policies expire over the next decade, employment-based coverage will grow to 159 million and remain the largest source of insurance.

The coverage patterns vary significantly by income. People with income less than 150% of the federal poverty level are more likely to be uninsured or covered through Medicaid or the Children’s Health Insurance Program, while those with higher income are predominantly insured through employer-sponsored coverage.
