Quick Facts: Health Insurance/Income

Health insurance coverage affects how easily and how often people use health care services. Individuals with inconsistent or no health insurance might not receive the services they need to prevent or treat health problems. Uninsured women have a harder time getting the health care they need before, during and after pregnancy compared to insured women, and this can negatively impact their health and the health of their babies. Government services like Medicaid provide some uninsured women and children with access to critical health services.
