WASHINGTON, Aug. 26 Karen Ignagni, President and CEO of America's Health Insurance Plans (AHIP), today released the following statement on new data released by the U.S. Census Bureau showing that more than 45 million Americans are uninsured:



"Today's report showing that 45 million Americans are uninsured highlights a critical social and economic challenge that the nation must address. While the Census Bureau reports a modest decline in the uninsured rate, this does not reduce the urgency of the crisis. Over the past two years, our community has put forth a series of proposals to cover the uninsured, improve quality, and reduce skyrocketing health care costs. We need coverage for all Americans, coverage they can afford, and coverage they can keep."
