Health Affairs reports that U.S. Census Bureau figures indicate that after full implementation of the ACA in 2014 and the expansion of insurance coverage that followed, there was a sharp drop in the number of uninsured Americans. That level has now stabilized, with the percentage of uninsured for the entire year dropping from 9.1 percent (29 million) in 2015 to 8.8 percent (28.1 million) in 2016.
