medically uninsured

A person or group of individuals who have no health insurance.

In the US, ± 50 million have no health insurance, and an additional 10–20% population is significantly underinsured. The uninsured do not qualify for Medicaid, which is the safety net for many Americans, because they are not eligible to receive state welfare benefits, Aid to Families with Dependent Children, or do not meet other financial or categorical criteria.
