The Impacts of Health Reform on Health Insurance Coverage and Health Care Access, Use, and Affordability for Women in Massachusetts

Abstract

This policy brief examines the progress women have made in under health reform in Massachusetts. The authors find that women achieved significant gains in coverage, access, use, and affordability under health reform, although gains in affordability were more limited. Gains were particularly strong for vulnerable subgroups of women, including lower-income women and racial/ethnic minority women.
