More than 670,000 Alabamians under age sixty-five, or about 16 percent of the population, are uninsured. Most uninsured Alabamians are in working families (77 percent) where at least one person is employed either full time or part time. The largest total number and percentage of uninsured is aged nineteen to thirty and the uninsured are disproportionately people of color, although whites make up the majority of the uninsured population. The state insurance market is dominated by Blue Cross Blue Shield of Alabama (BCBSAL). In 2010, it had a 91 percent market share in the individual market with some 121,000 covered lives.
