Study on the Consequences of Uninsurance Featured in a New Journal Supplement

A June 2003 supplement of Medical Care Research and Review presents a compelling case that health insurance does lead to improved health and better access to care. The supplement, with Thomas Rice as guest editor, includes four commentaries on the topic by John Ayanian, Stuart Butler, Karen Davis, and Richard Kronick. The supplement, published by Sage Publications and supported by the Kaiser Commission on Medicaid and the Uninsured (KCMU), features Jack Hadley s exhaustive review of 25 years of research literature.

Jack Hadley, the author of the Kaiser study, testifies to the U.S. Senate Subcommittee on Labor and HHS Appropriations on Wednesday, May 14. You may read his testimony after the hearing and view the webcast after 12 p.m. Thursday, May 15.
