The number of people without health insurance in New Hampshire remained steady from 2017 to 2018. 

The new census data shows that in 2017 and 2018 about 77,000 New Hampshire residents, or 6% of the state's population, didn't have health insurance.

Nationally, the uninsured rate ticked up from 7.9% to 8.5% over the same period.

States without Medicaid expansion under the Affordable Care Act saw higher increases in the uninsured rate in 2018.

New Hampshire is an expanded Medicaid state.
