The Health of Disconnected Low-Income Men

Abstract

This brief examines the health insurance coverage and health status of disconnected low-income men from 2008 to 2010, focusing primarily on mens connections to health care providers and systems. Less than half of low-income men age 1844 in the United States have any insurance coverage; coverage rates vary significantly by state, citizenship, ethnicity, and education. Compared with higher-income men the same age, low-income men also have lower access to routine health care and have worse health outcomes.
