The percentage of persons in the United States without health insurance that do not qualify for Medicaid or Medicare has been increasing steadily since 1979. Growing numbers of single-parent households, full-time workers becoming part-time, jobs without benefits, and early retirement are a few of the factors contributing to the problem of the medically uninsured.
