Health Care System Factors for Utah Population Characteristics: Household Income

Health Care System Factors

Health insurance coverage is related to income--persons with higher household incomes are more likely to be covered by health insurance. This is true despite the fact that public programs such as CHIP, Medicaid, and Utah's Primary Care Network (PCN) are available to low-income persons. Until recently, however, only children, pregnant women, single parents, and disabled adults could gain Medicaid eligibility by virtue of their low income status. Now, low-income adults who are not disabled may also be eligible for certain types of health care coverage through the Utah Department of Health.
