Uninsured Veterans and Family Members: Who Are They and Where Do They Live?
While veterans are less likely than the rest of the non-elderly population to be uninsured, there are an estimated 1.3 million uninsured veterans nationwide. Another 0.9 million veterans use VA care, but have no other health insurance coverage. An additional 0.9 million adults and children in veterans’ families are uninsured. Both uninsured veterans and their family
members report significantly less access to needed health care than their counterparts with insurance coverage.
