Distressed Patients Gain Insurance Coverage


In an analysis of data from the National Health Interview Survey (NHIS), the number of uninsured adults ages 18 to 64 fell from 28.1% in 2012 to 19.5% in first 9 months of 2015, Robin Cohen, PhD, and Emily Zammitti, MPH, of the National Center for Health Statistics, reported in a Data Brief. But there was no change in the proportion of adults with serious psychological distress who had a usual place to go for medical care or who had talked to a healthcare provider in the past year, they reported. These figures hovered just under 80% and just under 90%, respectively. (Fiore, 5/4)
