Health Insurance Coverage: Early Release of Estimates From the National Health Interview Survey, January–September 2016 Results From January through September 2016, the percentage of persons of all ages who were uninsured at the time of interview was 8.8% (28.2 million). The decrease of 0.3 percentage points from the 2015 uninsured rate of 9.1% (28.6 million) was not statistically significant. About 20.4 million fewer persons lacked health insurance coverage in the first 9 months of 2016 compared with 2010 (48.6 million or 16.0%). Long-term trends In the first 9 months of 2016, among adults aged 18–64, 12.3% were uninsured at the time of interview, 20.3% had public coverage, and 69.0% had private health insurance coverage (Figure 1). From 1997 through 2013, the percentage of adults aged 18–64 who were uninsured at the time of interview generally increased. More recently, the percentage of uninsured adults aged 18– 64 decreased, from 20.4% in 2013 to 12.3% in the first 9 months of 2016. During this 3-year period, corresponding increases were seen in both public and private coverage among adults aged 18– 64. In the first 9 months of 2016, among children aged 0–17 years, 5.0% were uninsured, 43.4% had public coverage, and 53.5% had private coverage (Figure 2). The percentage of children who were uninsured generally decreased, from 13.9% in 1997 to 5.0% in the first 9 months of 2016. From 1997 through 2012, the percentage of children with private coverage generally decreased, and the percentage of children with public coverage generally increased. However, more recently, the percentage of children with public or private coverage has leveled off. From 2011 through the first 9 months of 2016, public coverage for children ranged between 41.0% and 43.4%. The percentage of children with private coverage was unchanged from 2011 (53.3%) through the first 9 months of 2016 (53.5%). Short-term trends by age In the first 9 months of 2016, adults aged 25–34 were almost twice as likely as adults aged 45–64 to lack health insurance coverage (16.4% compared Figure 2.

The observed difference in uninsured rates for adults aged 18–24 (13.6%) and 35–44 (14.7%) was not significant. The rates of uninsurance at the time of interview remained relatively stable from 2010 through 2013 for all age groups except adults aged 18-24 (Figure 3). Among adults aged 18–24, the percentage of those uninsured decreased, from 31.5% in 2010 to 25.9% in 2011, and then remained stable through 2013. For all age groups, the percentage who 16.4 14.7 13.6 8.6 53.5 43.4 5.0 were uninsured decreased significantly from 2013 through the first 9 months of 2016. The magnitude of the decreases ranged from –6.2 percentage points for adults aged 45–64 to –10.8 percentage points for adults aged 18–24. For adults aged 18–24, 35–44, and 45–64, the rates of uninsurance at the time of interview did not change significantly between 2015 and the first 9 months of 2016. Among adults aged 25–34, the percent uninsured decreased from 17.9% in 2015 to 16.4% in the first 9 months of 2016.

Health Insurance Coverage: Early Release of Estimates From the National Health Interview Survey, January–September 2016 Short-term trends by poverty status In the first 9 months of 2016, among adults aged 18–64, 26.0% of those who were poor, 23.0% of those who were near poor, and 7.0% of those who were not poor lacked health insurance coverage at the time of interview (Figure 4). A decrease was noted in the percentage of uninsured adults from 2010 through the first 9 months of 2016 among all three poverty groups. However, the greatest decreases in the uninsured rate since 2013 were among adults who were poor or near poor. More recently, among adults who were poor, near poor, and not poor, there was no significant change in the percent uninsured between 2015 and the first 9 months of 2016. In the first 9 months of 2016, among children aged 0–17 years, 6.1% of those who were poor, 6.4% of those who were near poor, and 3.3% of those who were not poor lacked health insurance coverage at the time of interview (Figure 5). A general decrease in the percentage of uninsured children was observed among the poor, near poor, and not poor from 2010 through 2015. More recently, among children who were poor, near poor, and not poor, there was no significant change in the percent uninsured between 2015 and the first 9 months of 2016. The observed increase in the percentage of poor children who were uninsured, from 4.4% in 2015 to 6.1% in the first 9 months of 2016, was not significant. Figure 4.
