  • Description:
    As a nationaJ issue, the type and extent of health insurance coverage has been a matter of concern for some time. The debate over the various national health insurance proposzds routinely focuses on the extent and type of coverage to be made availabIe under Legislation. In particular, the number of uninsured persons and their characteristics have been a matter of interest and investigation. Thus the population’s current level of coverage must be presented in oth a timely and relevant fashion. There is a eed to answer the following questions: How many persons have no health care coverage at all? What are their characteristics? Among persons who have health care coverage, how many are covered under broad types of public and private insurance proLgrams? How many persons are covered exclusively under public programs? This report presents statistics that bear directly on these questions and are based primarily on survey respondents’ perceptions of their health care coverage.

    Findings in this report include estimates from the Health Interview Survey (HIS) of the number of persons covered under specific plans or programs, regardless of other coverage, as weIl as those covered exclusively under certain plans or programs.
