Colorado Household Survey Issue Brief – The Relationship Between Insurance Coverage and Access to a Regular Source of Health Care

Download

The 2008-09 Colorado Household Survey (COHS) was initiated to collect information on the health insurance status of Coloradans. The COHS was sponsored by the Colorado Department of Health Care Policy and Financing and funded by The Colorado Trust in an effort to more accurately assess the issues surrounding health insurance coverage in Colorado, and provide baseline information about health care coverage and access in anticipation of state and national health reform efforts. Using data from the COHS, this issue brief summarizes findings that examine the relationship between insurance status, access to a usual source of health care and utilization of health care services.
