The percentage of Millennials who lack major medical coverage may have soared since 2016.
Analysts from the Transamerica Center for Health Studies are reporting new survey results that show loss of Medicaid coverage and individual major medical coverage has wiped out increased use of group health coverage.
About 16% of Millennials lacked health coverage in late 2018, up from 11% in 2016, according to Transamerica center analysts.
The center analysts based their figures on an online survey of 3,604 U.S. adults ages 18 to 64 that was conducted in August 2018.
The center defines “Millennials” as being people born from 1980 through 1997. The analysts classified 1,172 the survey participants as Millennials.
