Colorado Household Survey Issue Brief – Reaching “Mixed Insured” Families: A Key to Success of the Health Insurance Exchange

Download

Thirty percent of Coloradans—1.5 million people—live in families where some members have health insurance and others don’t. Many in this group are uninsured parents with insured children. But research shows that parents without insurance tend to delay or do without care for their insured children. This brief examines “mixed insurance” families and the challenge they present to policymakers and advocates who want to improve health care access for children.
