Nearly 46 million Americans, including more than 8 million children, are living without health insurance—forced to gamble every day that they won’t get sick or injured. And that’s a risk no one should have to take. Many uninsured Americans work hard, but still can’t afford coverage. In fact, eight out of 10 of them are in working families. Having a job, even a full-time job, does not necessarily guarantee coverage. As costs go up, fewer businesses are able to provide coverage for their employees, and those that do are struggling to hold on to the coverage they offer.
The Arthritis Foundation believes that as the number of uninsured Americans increases, the need to address the problem becomes more critical. We are proud to be a Cover the Uninsured Week national supporter.
Tell Congress that health coverage must be their top priority.
