  • A historic surge in jobless claims threatens to leave millions of Americans joining the ranks of the uninsured, an increasingly grim outlook in the country that’s emerging as the new global epicenter of the coronavirus pandemic.
  • Broadly reopening the insurance marketplaces would give more of the nation’s 28 million uninsured a chance to get coverage amid a health crisis.
  • The short-term plans are typically skimpier than Obamacare plans and don’t include some of the health law’s protections for people with preexisting conditions.
