Health Care Coverage, Spending Trends Diverge Among Payers as COVID-Related Policies Expire

The share of people without health insurance coverage reached an all-time low of 7.2% in 2023 but is projected to rise to 8.9% in 2034, according to the Congressional Budget Office.

The increase in the uninsured rate was largely due to the end of Medicaid’s continuous eligibility provisions in 2023 and 2024, the expiration of enhanced subsidies available through the Affordable Care Act (ACA) marketplaces after 2025 and a surge in immigration that began in 2022, observed the CBO in a report posted June 18.
