Filetype[PDF-504.20 KB]

  • Description:
    Health insurance coverage has become increas¬ingly more prevalent in the civilian, noninstitutional population of the United States since the period July 1962-June 1963. An earlier report (Volume 18, Num¬ber 3, Supplement) indicated that due to the advent of of medicare the rate of increase has been higher among persons 65 years of age and older than among younger persons. Since almost all persons 65 years of age and older are now covered by medicare, primary interest now lies in the changing patterns of private health insurance coverage of persons under 65. Although the gains have been far less dramatic for persons under 65 years of age, between the period July 1962-June 1963 and the year 1968 there have been steady in creases in the proportion of persons with hospital insurance coverage for each of the age groups shown in figure 1.
