The ranks of the uninsured dropped by 20 million in the U.S. since 2010, according to the latest survey by the National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS).

The 2016 survey showed that 9 percent of all Americans — nearly 29 million — were uninsured, but 20 million others had gained insurance under Obamacare since 2010.

Other results in the 18-64 age group:

  • Uninsured: 12.4 percent.
  • Had public coverage: 20 percent.

Sixty-nine percent had private health coverage; 5 percent (or 9.4 million) of those had coverage through the marketplace or state-based exchanges.

In the 0-17 age group in 2016:

  • Uninsured: 5.1 percent.
  • Had public coverage: 43 percent.
  • Had private coverage: 54 percent.

Further, the percentage of persons under age 65 with private insurance enrolled in a high-deductible health plan (HDHP) increased from 36.7 percent in 2015 to 39.4 percent in 2016.

Of the 29 million who were uninsured, they had been uninsured for either part of the year, for more than 1 year, or at the time of the interview, according to the survey.
