Quick Facts: Health Insurance/Income

Health insurance coverage affects how people use health care services. According to the Institute of Medicine, health insurance status is the single most important influence in determining whether health care is accessible to children when they need it. Additionally, uninsured women receive fewer prenatal services and report greater difficulty in obtaining needed care than women with insurance. The uninsured are less likely to have a usual source of medical care and more likely to delay or forgo needed health care services.
