Unfortunately, as a result of the increasing unemployment rate, the number of people without health insurance has been rising in the recent years. In 2002 the number of uninsured people was 43,574,000 or 15.2% of the nation. Since the amount of ethnic (minorities¡ö has passed the majority mark in more than a half of the largest cities in the US, it is important not to overlook them in order to understand the current trends in the industry at large.
