There are a lot of statistics to digest here. Thank you for the clear infographic that make it easier to process.

That is quite the breakdown.

With the "obama care" it literally was a mess, things are finally smoothing out, people who NEED healthcare are finally getting it, though sadly.. Some people still are struggling because they make too much, and it would cost more with "obama care" over private, but the ability to get private is not available,

It's not perfect by a long shot, but some folks who weren't covered before do have health coverage now. However, they really do need to increase the Health Savings Account limits, and work on standardizing hospital care costs and prescription drug costs.

The state of the health care system is deplorable. I'm so thankful for the fact that we have health insurance now through my husband's employer. Prior to this job, we were paying through the nose, and my 20-year-old daughter couldn't even get any help with insurance because she didn't make ENOUGH money and the state we live in didn't do the Medicare expansion. What a mess!

Interesting breakdown. I will say I get tired of the constant comparison with whites though.

That is a lot of statistics to read. Heath care breakdowns are always a mess. Thanks for the great breakdown that attempts to explain things.

I think the Affordable Healthcare Act has helped a lot of people, but there should still be 100% coverage of all Americans for health insurance. It's too bad that it can't be more affordable. I know quite a few people who still can't afford it and go without.

Wow. That is a lot of information. I happen to live in one of the states with the highest uninsured rates which I find interesting.

A lot of information here, but for the most part I hate it. I'm sure it has helped so many people but it has hurt so many people as well. I for one can't afford any of the insurance they offer and will be punished for not having something that is a option. Is it fair no it's not but it is what it is. There are other ways to have people have insurance without punishing others. or forcing it on everyone. I for one don't go to the doctors enough to even think about hitting 200$ a year much less 5K

That is explained better than most that I have seen explained. I am glad to see more People getting coverage. Medical Bills can Bankrupt someone quick.
