New Kaiser study on the cost of covering the Uninsured

A report published in a web-exclusive article in Health Affairs this week by the Kaiser Family Foundation found that people who are uninsured for a full year receive less than half as much care as those that have insurance, yet pay more for that little they do receive.  In 2008, the uninsured will spend a total of $30 billion in out-of-pocket costs for health care. In addition to these alarming statistics, the report also projects how much it would cost if everyone had health insurance.
