By The Numbers

Intensive Care

South Florida hospitals may suffer financial headaches if demographic trends pan out as expected over the next 25 years. University of Florida studies suggest the number of uninsured residents could pressure the region's hospitals to provide free care. Under the scenario, commercial insurance premiums would likely rise as hospitals look to pass on the cost.

1 million -- South Florida's uninsured population under 65
Nearly 25% -- Percentage of senior citizens in south Florida who are uninsured
40% -- Percentage of uninsured patients in Palm Beach County's trauma centers
