Are you living without health insurance?

The cost of health care has been growing for decades and with the recession in the United States, high unemployment rates and lower incomes are making it harder than ever to afford insurance.


According to the 2010 U.S. Census, about 16% of Americans are living without health coverage. Are you one of these people? Have you been denied health coverage? Whether the premiums are too high or you’ve had to forgo insurance to pay for coverage of a family member, we’d like to hear your story.


Turn on your video camera and tell us your health care story. The most passionate and well-thought-out responses could be featured on CNN, and even in a one-on-one debate!


Update: iReporters EWillies1961 and k3vsDad went head to head in an iReport Debate on the Supreme Court's health care ruling. Read our follow-up post to see who won the debate.
