Health Insurance Coverage and the Uninsured in Massachusetts

May 12, 2006

Abstract

This chartbook provides detailed information about health insurance coverage in Massachusetts. It uses the most current information available from the Census Bureau's Current Population Survey March 2003 and 2004 Annual Social and Economic Supplements. Just over half a million Massachusetts residents under 65 were uninsured during 2002-2003. Nearly three-quarters of the uninsured are from low- and moderate-income families. Adults without children comprise nearly two-thirds of the uninsured. Nearly 90 percent of the uninsured come from working families. Workers under the poverty line are four times more likely to be uninsured than high-income workers. (Roadmap to Coverage, June 21, 2005)
