Tens of millions of Americans still have no health insurance. If you are one of them, please share your story!   

by Tony Novak, CPA, MBA, MT   August 24, 2014 , revised  August 26, 2014

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services tells us that millions of people have enrolled in health insurance since the launch of Obamacare this year. Most of the individuals who gained coverage are lower income individuals eligible for Medicaid or young adults now eligible to remain on their parents policies. Yet little is reported about the tens of millions who still do not have coverage. We decided to do some digging to help uncover more of the human story beneath the statistics.

Which best describes your situation?

If you have no health insurance, we'd love to hear from you. Please post a message using the Facebook comment box below or sent an email. We do intend to compile and report on the comments we receive but won't use your name or an personally identifiable information.

Update: One day after the release of this article the State of Washington announced that its health insurance exchange will have a special open enrollment period beginning tomorrow, August 27, in an attempt to accommodate some applicants who are still having trouble with enrollment. This announcement applies only to the Washington State exchange and not to applicants in other states. We have no information about whether other states will follow this same course of remedial action. If you use the Washington special enrollment period, we would like to hear from you. Please let us know if the special enrollment period is useful in resolving your problems.
