Millennials, Latinos among groups most likely not to have health insurance

Twenty-seven percent of both white Hispanics or Latinos, and American Indians or Alaska Natives between the ages of 18 and 64 were uninsured in 2015, U.S. Census data reveals.

What if that health care program was 30% to 50% less expensive than most traditional health insurance?
