COVID-era policies expanded access to Medicaid and Marketplace plans for millions of people in the US, resulting in the lowest rates of uninsured status ever. However, these policies are set to expire soon, resulting in many people under 65 losing their coverage.

Finally, we describe the trends that the CBO is projecting for major coverage categories (including uninsurance) and for health insurance premiums during the coming decade.”
