Health Insurance Coverage for Women of Reproductive Age, 2013-2016

Abstract

In this chartbook, we report changes in uninsurance among women of reproductive age (15 to 44) from 2013 to 2016 using data from the American Community Survey. We find that the uninsurance rate among women of reproductive age fell from 20.3 percent in 2013 to 11.6 percent in 2016 and that women of all ages, family structures, races and ethnicities, citizenship status, educational attainment, employment status, and incomes gained coverage over this period. Despite these gains, women of color, single mothers, noncitizens, and women with low incomes or a high school education or less still had higher rates of uninsurance in 2016.
