About 5,700 to 8,500 adults in Hays County are in the “coverage gap” when it comes to health insurance, according to Consumers Union, a division of Consumer Reports.
“Approximately $13.8 million in current local taxpayer funded healthcare for the uninsured could be reduced if the gap was closed,” Blake Hutson, policy expert with CU, said.
