After House Republicans passed the American Health Care Act last month, uncertainty permeated the health care debate for many. For some, like the more than 1 million people in Georgia without health insurance, that uncertainty has been a fact of life for a lot longer than the last few weeks. 

As that bill, which could end up increasing the number of uninsured in Georgia by 720,000 people, winds it way through the legislative process, the Atlanta Regional Commission took a look at the number of uninsured by Georgia House District. 

While rural South Georgia has among the highest rates of uninsured in the state, there are pockets of metro Atlanta with rates above 25 percent.
