Uninsured Rate and Disability
How many Americans with disabilities are uninsured?
A disability can be a long-lasting physical, mental, or emotional condition. This condition can make it difficult for a person to do activities such as walking, climbing stairs, dressing, bathing, learning, or remembering. This condition can also impede a person from being able to go outside the home alone or to work at a job or business.
Nationally, the uninsured rate is lower for people with disabilities than for other Americans. However, the rate varies significantly based on location. The map below shows how the uninsured rate of people with disabilities differs by state.
