The LGBT community continues to report that its members face greater obstacles in daily life than do non-LGBT adults. A Gallup survey that focused on health insurance once again underscored this social disparity.
Gallup asked nearly 45,000 U.S. adults to describe their health coverage status, including about 1,800 who identified as LGBT. The good news: More LGBT adults reported having health insurance in the second quarter of 2014 (82 percent) than in the third quarter of 2013 (76 percent). But among non-LGBT respondents, 87 percent said they had coverage, compared to 83 percent in Q313.
