Since 2010, Some Minority Groups’ Uninsured Rates Have Dropped by Half

Uninsured rates among Black, Latino, Asian and Native American communities plummeted from 2010 to 2022, as more people gained health care coverage through federal health care programs and employer-sponsored plans, according to reports released by HHS.

The uninsured rate for Black Americans under age 65 dropped from 20.9% to 10.8% between 2010 and 2022, and the rate dropped from 32.7% to 18.0% for Latino Americans during that time. Meanwhile, the uninsured rate went from 16.6% to 6.2% for Asian Americans, Native Hawaiians and Pacific Islanders (AANHPI), and from 32.4% to 19.9% for American Indians and Alaska Natives (AI/AN).
