Sellers of individual health coverage may still have 33 million uninsured U.S. residents to pursue, and 4.4 million of those uninsured people may be in families with income over the 400 percent of the federal poverty level (FPL).
Linda Blumberg and other analysts at the Urban Institute have included those figures in a report on the remaining uninsured Americans. The report was sponsored by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation.

About 4.1 million of the remaining high-income uninsured people are citizens, are permanent residents, or can show that they are in the United States legally with some other kind of immigration status. People in the latter category make up about 15 percent of all of the remaining uninsured people who are in the country legally.
About 300,000 of the remaining high-income uninsured people cannot prove that they are in the country legally. And only 5.8 percent of the undocumented uninsured people have a family income over 400 percent of the FPL.
The uninsured rate is 4.6 percent for high-income uninsured people who are in the country legally and 16 percent for high-income uninsured people who are undocumented.
About 7 million of the uninsured people who are in the country legally and 975,000 of the undocumented uninsured people have a family income that ranges from 201 percent to 399 percent of the FPL.
Blumberg and her colleagues based their numbers on an analysis of Census Bureau data.
