Many in Washington, DC, area's affluent suburbs lack medical coverage

Washington Post, November 9, 2009

For people lacking health insurance in the Washington, DC, region, where they live can make all the difference in getting affordable healthcare, the Washington Post reports. Washington, DC, has taxpayer-funded health insurance for everyone within generous income restrictions. But about 10% of eligible adults remain uninsured, and the city wants to find and enroll them. But in Prince George's County, MD, recent Census Bureau statistics show that one in five working-age adults is uninsured. The census statistics also underscore wide regional differences in how many people are uninsured, the Post reports.
