More Americans may lose healthcare coverage

As Americans continue to struggle with debt problems, many are also facing the specter of a lack of healthcare.

A recent report from Families USA states that between 2008 and 2010 an estimated 6.9 million people may lose healthcare coverage. That averages to about 44,230 people in the country who are losing coverage every week.

The report states that with a rise in costs, families cannot afford healthcare and many employers are struggling to provide any coverage.

“Clearly, healthcare costs are out of control, and these costs are making health coverage increasingly unaffordable,” Ron Pollack, executive director of Families USA, said.

According to the report, California will have the highest estimated number of people who will lose healthcare coverage with 995,200, an average of 6,380 per week. Not including the District of Columbia, the state with the lowest estimated number of people losing healthcare is Vermont with 9,970.

The estimated total number of people losing healthcare during the three-year period does not include Massachusetts because data from the state could not be reported due to a change in its healthcare laws.

Though the estimated number of people who may lose healthcare is based mainly on those who are employed, the report also states that unemployment “is almost certainly fueling additional increases in the number of people who are losing coverage.”

The Bureau of Labor Statistics has recently reported that the unemployment rate is at 9.5 percent.
