The article focuses on the estimation of the 2011 Congressional Budget Office stating that 23 million non-elderly Americans will remain uninsured after 2014, including 15 million eligible for Medicaid coverage. According to Michael Perry of Lake Research Partners, knowledge gap is one of the reasons for many uninsured Americans. Perry adds that state budgets are among the obstacles that streamlines enrollment processes, and states that the goal of Medicaid should be on health insurance programs.
