At the close of the Affordable Care Act’s first open enrollment period, an estimated 9.5 million fewer U.S. adults were uninsured, according to a new Commonwealth Fund survey.

The national uninsured rate among working age-adults dropped from 20 percent in July–September 2013 to 15 percent in April–June 2014. Most people with new coverage, either a marketplace plan or Medicaid, said they were optimistic that it would improve their ability to get health care. A majority of those who had used their new plan to get care or fill a prescription said they would not have been able to do so before, according to the Commonwealth Fund report.
