About the Maps
We welcome and encourage you to use this information to find out where the uninsured live so you can join the effort to educate the uninsured about the new affordable health coverage options.
Millions of uninsured Americans who will be newly eligible for coverage made available by the Affordable Care Act do not know about the new options or how to enroll. We are mounting a nationwide campaign called Get Covered America to get the word out and overcome this significant knowledge gap. We can't do this important public education and outreach effort alone, and we hope you will use these maps to inform your efforts.
The maps and data presented here are for outreach targeting purposes only, and they are not meant to measure the precise number of people who may be eligible for coverage.
Where do the data come from?
The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) partnered with the Office of the Assistant Secretary for Planning and Evaluation (ASPE) to estimate the number of eligible uninsured people living in each PUMA in the United States. These estimates are available on the CMS website.
CMS and ASPE used the Census Bureau’s 2011 American Community Survey (ACS) for the analysis. All estimates represent the eligible uninsured population aged 0-64 and have been adjusted by ASPE to account for eligibility due to immigration status.
