AUSTIN, Texas — For more than a decade, Texas has maintained the highest rate of people without health insurance in the nation. Currently, more than 6 million Texans don't have health insurance. The Affordable Care Act requires most people to obtain health coverage in 2014 and sets forth a variety of ways to assist the uninsured. So far, fewer than 120,000 Texans have obtained coverage through the federal health insurance marketplace.
To measure the impact of ACA enrollment efforts, this interactive provides context on Texas' uninsured population.
