The Uninsured
Description: The MEPS identifies persons who were uninsured for a full year, uninsured for a given point-in-time, and uninsured for a period of time during the course of a year (known as ever uninsured). In addition to the tables, query tool, and publications listed below, data on the uninsured and their utilization of health services, expenses, and previous health insurance coverage can be downloaded from data files for further analyses.
Data tables: The Health Insurance Tables listed under the MEPS-HC Summary Data Tables contain health insurance coverage categories which includes an uninsured category.
Analytic tools: With the MEPSnet/HC query tool, respondents can be identified as being uninsured for all of the year. Refer to the UNINS variable in the Health Insurance Variable Group of the Variable Selection Query Tab.
