If we don’t address our broken health care system, 16,220 more CT residents this year will join the 326,000 already uninsured in our state, according to a new report by Families USA. Between the beginning of 2008 and the end of 2010 it is estimated that 48,660 more CT residents will lose coverage if nothing is done. These estimates are likely to be conservative as the researchers did not include the impact of rising unemployment which is 8% in CT.
