Health Insurance Coverage in Massachusetts

Estimates from the 2008 Massachusetts Health Insurance Survey

Abstract

The Urban Institute, along with its subcontractor, International Communications Research, conducted the 2008 Massachusetts Health Insurance Survey (HIS) for the Massachusetts Division of Health Care Finance and Policy to obtain information on health insurance coverage and access to and use of health care for the non-institutionalized population in Massachusetts. This report summarizes the results of that new survey, including the finding that more than more than 97 percent of Massachusetts residents have health insurance, with only 2.6 percent of state residents remaining uninsured.
