Description:
   This Statistical Brief presents estimates on medical expenditures and their variations by insurance coverage for chronic conditions among non-elderly adults. Adults ages 18-64 with public insurance only were much more likely to be reported in fair or poor health (34.1 percent) than those with private insurance (7.6 percent) or no insurance coverage (12.6 percent). The uninsured were less likely to be near-elderly (ages 55-64) than persons with private or public insurance only coverage.
