Contrary to early CDC numbers, a new survey by Gallup finds that CT’s uninsured rate dropped from 12.3% in 2013 to 5.0% for the first half of this year. CT’s drop was similar to other states that chose to both expand Medicaid and create a state-based health insurance exchange. Rhode Island is tied with Oregon for the third biggest drop in uninsured rates among states, from 13.3% to 2.7%. An early CDC survey published in June found that CT’s uninsured rate had dropped very modestly from 9.1% in 2013 to 7.0% last year.
