Survey: Rate of Uninsured Americans Drops

Updated: Wednesday, April 9 2014, 12:50 PM EDT

CNN --- A new survey indicates the percentage of Americans who don't have health insurance is at its lowest since 2008.

The Gallup poll released Monday puts the number at 15.6%.

That's down from the 18% of Americans who didn't have health insurance in the last quarter of 2013 -- an all-time high. The latest number is based on a survey of more than 40,000 adults from January to March.

The White House is likely celebrating the drop - a week after it announced more than seven million people had signed up on the federal and state exchanges for health care insurance.
