Abstract

Health insurance coverage data from state tax filings for 2011 and 2012 is used to address a gap in research that has focused on health insurance coverage in a given 12-month period and to provide a better understanding of the population in Massachusetts that is prone to remain uninsured over consecutive years. There has been very limited research focused on quantifying and understanding individuals who may be chronically uninsured for more than 12 months.
