South Florida a hot spot for those without health insurance

Miami Herald, September 24, 2009

New Census data for the first time confirm unusually high rates of uninsured in Florida's Miami-Dade and Broward counties, and reveal wide disparities in coverage among local communities. Fifty-three percent of adults ages 18-64 in Hialeah lack health insurance—almost three times the national average. Meanwhile, only 13.8% of that age group in Weston are uninsured, the lowest rate in South Florida.
