MHIS-Estimates of Health Insurance Coverage in Massachusetts from the Massachusetts Health Insurance Survey: An Update for 2010

Bookmark and Share

In April 2006, Massachusetts enacted landmark health reform legislation. Based on the 2009 Massachusetts Health Insurance Survey (MHIS), the overall uninsurance rate in the state was estimated to be 2.7 percent. This policy brief provides an update on the estimates of the uninsurance rate in Massachusetts as of Spring 2010. The primary data source for this work is the 2008, 2009, and 2010 MHIS. The authors also present uninsurance estimates based on other surveys fielded in Massachusetts as a comparison to the estimates from the MHIS.
