Number of rural Mainers without health insurance dipped from 2013 to 2017
from Bangor Daily News
More people had health insurance from 2013 to 2017 across the nation, including every state and almost every county. In Maine as a whole, 10.2% of the population younger than 65 was not insured in 2017, according to the U.S. Census Bureau, which used data from Small Area Health Insurance Estimates. That's about 100,000 people, down 3.2% since 2013. Of Maine's 16 counties, those that are mostly or totally rural saw the percentage of uninsured residents decrease from 2013 to 2017. Piscataquis County, for example, saw its uninsured rate drop 4.2% to 12.2% over that time span. The Census Bureau listed that county as 100% rural.
