The majority of Americans believe that most of the uninsured are unemployed or are in families with unemployed adults. Actually, more than 80 percent of the uninsured live in working families.

Higher cancer mortality. Uninsured cancer patients, on average, die sooner than insured cancer patients, largely because of delays in diagnosis.
Inadequate care for chronic diseases. Uninsured adults with chronic diseases - such as diabetes, cardiovascular disease, end-stage renal disease, HIV infection, and mental illness - are less likely to receive appropriate care to manage their health conditions.
Second-rate hospital care. Uninsured patients who are hospitalized for a range of conditions are more likely to die in the hospital, receive fewer services, and to experience substandard care and injury when admitted to a hospital than insured patients.
Inferior care for children. Uninsured children are more likely to receive no or delayed care than insured children, which increases their risk of hospitalization for conditions that could have been treated earlier without hospitalization.

Without employer contribution, more than half of the working population in America do not make enough to purchase a health care plan on the open market.

The average wage in america is under $625.00 a week, the typical policy for health care is $600.00 to $1,200 a month or upwards of 25% of the gross weekly salary.
