Health Care News reported in July 2016:

Roughly the same percentage of Americans aged 18–64 were covered by private health insurance in 2015 as in 2006, according to early estimates from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC’s) National Health Interview Survey.

About 70 percent of non-middle-aged American adults were covered by private health insurance in 2015—the fourth full year after President Obama signed the Affordable Care Act into law—as in 2006, four years before the law, according to a graph in the survey.
