The Importance of Health Insurance Coverage

Why is health insurance coverage important?

  • It improves access to care
  • It’s associated with improved health outcomes
  • It supports appropriate health care utilization
  • It improves individuals’ and families’ financial well-being

A new briefing from the American Hospital Association discusses each of these facets on the impact of health coverage on consumers and the overall health system. The report also provides recent data trends on the number of insured and uninsured and a reference list for further information.
