The Massachusetts Health Insurance Survey (MHIS), conducted by the Center for Health Information and Analysis (CHIA), provides information on health insurance coverage, health care access and use and perceived health care affordability for Massachusetts residents. In 2014, health insurance coverage remained strong in Massachusetts, and most Massachusetts respondents reported having a usual source of care and a visit to a general doctor or specialist over the past 12 months. However, emergency department use, difficulties getting an appointment, and cost-related barriers to health care were common, suggest some persistent barriers to obtaining care, with more serious challenges for some vulnerable populations.
