Uninsured rate in SC drops slightly

WASHINGTON – The number of uninsured South Carolina residents has dropped about 10 percent in the past year, according to a new survey.

A Gallup survey estimated the state’s uninsured rate at 16.8 percent in June, down from 18.7 percent in 2013. If the estimate holds up for the rest of the year and is confirmed by government data, it would be the lowest uninsured rate in the state in many years.
