After the implementation of the Affordable Care Act, often called Obamacare, uninsured rates are falling in every state…except in Kansas. Heartland Health Monitor's Dan Margolies reports on the new Gallup survey released on Tuesday.
Although not statistically significant, the Sunflower State’s 1.9 point increase makes it the only state in the country to witness an uptick in its uninsured rate.
In 2013, 12.5 percent of the state’s residents lacked health insurance, according to Gallup. In 2014, that percentage had risen to 14.4 percent.
