  1. Fulltext. Will uninsured people volunteer for voluntary health insurance ? Experience from Washington State.

    Article - En anglais

    Fulltext.

    Objectives

    In national and local discussions of health care reform, there is disagreement about whether a national health insurance plan should be mandatory or voluntary.

    This study describes characteristics of low-income people who were more likely or less likely to be covered by a voluntary plan.

    Methods

    Survey data were available from an evaluation of Washington State's Basic Health Plan, which offered subsidized health insurance to low-income residents.

    For those subjects who were eligible and uninsured at baseline, those who joined were compared with those who did not join on a variety of demographic and health-related characteristics.

    Results

    There were substantial differences between those who did and did not join the Basic Health Plan.

    Those who did not enroll were generally less well-off, with less education, lower income, and worse health.

    Many had never had health insurance.

    Conclusions

    If health care reform results in a voluntary plan, additional measures may be needed to ensure that less advantaged citizens have adequate access to health care.
