One of five respondents in a recent study said they and/or their spouse or partner lost their job or were furloughed from their job because of COVID-19.

Even as economies began reopening in April and May, some researchers estimated up to 43 million people were likely to lose their employer-sponsored health insurance as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. Some would get coverage through Medicaid, while others would go through the marketplace—and others would go without any coverage at all.
