From the abstract:
We examined rates of uninsurance among workers in the US health care workforce by health care industry subtype and workforce category.

Because uninsurance leads to delays in seeking care, fewer prevention visits, and poorer health status, the fact that nearly 1 in 8 health care workers lacks insurance coverage is cause for concern.
