WICHITA, Kan. (AP) - The U.S. Census Bureau says more Kansans under the age of 65 are living without health insurance.
The bureau issued a report Wednesday showing that more than 380,000 Kansas residents under age 65 did not have health insurance in 2010. That's 15.8 percent of that age group, an increase from 14.6 percent in 2009.
The Wichita Eagle reports (http://bit.ly/UdHAYI ) that the census for the first time estimated health coverage for people between ages 50 to 64, who are more likely to use health insurance than younger age groups.
In 2010, about 60,800 people ages 50 to 64, or 11.4 percent of that group, did not have health insurance.
