WASHINGTON (CNN) -- Millions of Americans believe they are
suffering, because they lack health insurance, according to a
study in the Journal of the American Medical Association.
Researchers found that about 40 million people had no health
insurance in 1994, and another 29 million are inadequately
covered. The study concluded that 19 million U.S. adults
experienced serious consequences as a result of problems
getting or paying for health care.
The panel of doctors presenting the study said neither
legislation improving portability of health coverage nor
establishing medical savings accounts will significantly
reduce the numbers of uninsured people.
