Male, single, young, and low-income individuals more likely to be persistently uninsured, says report by researchers from UMass Medical School and Commonwealth Health Insurance Connector Authority

Although Massachusetts leads the nation with the lowest rates of uninsurance, residents who are male, single, young, and low-income are more likely than others to be persistently without health insurance for two consecutive years.  This was one of the findings of a report co-authored by researchers from UMass Medical School and the Commonwealth Health Insurance Connector Authority and funded by the Blue Cross Blue Shield of Massachusetts Foundation.  The findings suggest that a variety of approaches are needed to reduce the number of residents who remain without health insurance.
