The National Health Interview Survey finds that the number of uninsured has declined from 44.8 million in 2013, before ObamaCare’s coverage expansion took effect, to 29 million in the first quarter of 2015.
The uninsured rate fell from 14.4 percent in 2013 to 9.2 percent in 2015, according to the CDC.
The CDC report follows other studies that have found similar drops in the uninsured under ObamaCare.
The Obama administration estimated in March that 16.4 million people had gained coverage under the law, using Gallup survey data.
On Monday, Gallup released a survey showing the uninsured rate falling from 17.3 percent in 2013 to 11.7 percent.
The survey also found that there are now seven states with an uninsured rate at or below 5 percent (Rhode Island, Massachusetts, Vermont, Minnesota, Iowa, Connecticut and Hawaii.) Before this year, only Massachusetts had a rate that low.
The CDC report Wednesday also found a larger drop in the uninsured rate in states that expanded Medicaid, the government health insurance program for the poor, under ObamaCare.
