Indicator Report - Health Insurance Coverage

Why Is This Important?

Persons with health insurance were more likely than persons without health insurance to have a regular source of primary health care, and were more likely to have routine preventive care. Persons without coverage have often delayed seeking needed care and found services difficult to afford.
