Maverick County continues to have high rate of uninsured population

Maverick County continues to have one of the highest rates of uninsured in the nation with approximately 33 % of the population not counting with any health insurance coverage.

Back in 2013, a study reported that the total of people without any health insurance was at 35.1 %.

In a span of 5 years the rate of people without any health insurance coverage has only seen a minimal decrease.

According to information from U.S. News and studies on the subject there are approximately 33 % or close to 19,800 people who do not have any type of health insurance coverage in our county.

Medical Experts do state that the rate of uninsured in our community remains at a level that does not tip the scale in either way.

During 2013 a study derived from the U.S Census found that Maverick County was one of two South Texas counties which had among the highest rates of people without health insurance in the nation,

Hidalgo County had the highest rate among urban counties at 38.9 percent, and Maverick County has the highest rate among medium-sized counties at 35.1 percent.
