Get Covered America Statement on Ohio Uninsured Rate Dropping to Historic Low

August 13, 2014

 

COLUMBUS, OHIO – Today, Get Covered America Ohio State Director Trey Daly released the following statement in response to the new Ohio Health Issues Poll showing the uninsured rate dropped to 11% in Ohio – the lowest rate since this poll started.

“The results of this poll show what we’ve known all along – Ohioans are finding quality, affordable health coverage thanks to the Affordable Care Act. In our conversations with uninsured Ohioans statewide, we’ve seen that people are excited to learn about their new health care options. This is proof that Ohioans are taking advantage of their opportunity to get covered and have the peace of mind that comes with having insurance.

It’s great news that the uninsured rate has dropped to a historic low, but we know there is still a lot of work to do in Ohio. That’s why we aren’t slowing down our efforts to reach the uninsured and educate them on their new health care options. We want to make sure the next open enrollment period is just as successful as the first and the uninsured rate continues to drop across the Buckeye State.”
