Who Gained the Most Under Health Reform in Massachusetts?

October 16, 2008

Abstract

We know that health insurance coverage rose dramatically in the past year in Massachusetts. This study examines what the effect has been on specific populations, finding that the greatest gains in insurance coverage were reported by lower-income adults, younger adults and those in minority groups. Further, the reductions in uninsurance tended to be largest for subgroups that started out with higher levels of uninsurance.
