According to data released by the Census Bureau, the percentage of foreign-born households with health insurance is considerably less than that of native households.
Roughly two-thirds of the nation's foreign-born households have health coverage, the agency reports, while 87 percent of native households currently have health insurance plans.
This lower figure of foreign-born households with health coverage may have to do with lower median income. The Census Bureau reports the median for non-U.S.-born households is $46,224 - markedly less than the $50,541 median for native households.
Additionally, the data shows private health insurance companies covered three-quarters of foreign-born households, and slightly more for U.S.-born households.
Residents born in and out of the U.S. who currently reside in the country and may be looking for affordable health insurance rates may want to search online to receive quotes from various insurers.
