Insured – adult

Why this is important: Having health insurance is associated with healthcare access; timely access can reduce complications from illness and avoidable long-term health expenditures. Health insurance allows individuals to develop and maintain a good relationship with a healthcare provider. This is especially important for individuals with chronic health conditions that benefit from consistent monitoring and a continuity of care.

Definition: Percent of adults who currently have medical insurance.
