The relationship between health insurance and subjective health status was investigated.
It was hypothesized that persons without health insurance would have lower levels of subjective health status than those with health insurance and that this relationship would hold for both poor and nonpoor persons.
Data from the 1987 National Medical Expenditure Survey were analyzed to examined the relationship between health insurance and self-reported health status.
