The 2006 Census Bureau estimate of 47 million uninsured Americans is often cited as a reason that health care reform is necessary. But who makes up this 47 million? Is it fair to lump all uninsured individuals into one statistic? Building on her recent Employment Policies Institute paper Who are the Uninsured? former CBO director June O’Neill will discuss the characteristics of the uninsured population and what being uninsured means for individuals’ health status. Cato scholar Michael Tanner will comment on O’Neill’s findings.
