Spotlight: Health care reform - reducing ranks of uninsured Texans comes at a price
Abstract: Texas has the highest percentage of residents without health insurance in the nation. About 27 percent of nonelderly Texans, or 6.1 million people, don?t have coverage. The rest of the population is insured through an employer, private individual insurance or a public plan such as Medicaid. Congress approved health care reform, known as the Affordable Care Act, in March 2010 in part to reduce the ranks of the uninsured.
