WATE: Tennessee Has Lowest Number Of Uninsured In Decade

A new report says the number of uninsured people in Tennessee has continued to drop. According to a report by the University of Tennessee Center for Business and Economic Research Tennessee has hit a 10-year low, with the number of uninsured dropping to 6.6 percent.

Dr. LeAnn Luana, who co-authored the report, says the downward trend began in 2013, coinciding with the availability of the health insurance marketplace established as part of the Affordable Care Act. The number of uninsured children also saw a drop by more than half since 2013. According to the study, 98.5 percent of children are currently uninsured.
