Uninsurance Is a Major Barrier to Reducing Disparities

Slide 10.  Text Description is below the image.
  • Uninsured individuals do worse than privately insured individuals on almost 90% of quality measures and on all access measures.

A bar chart shows quality and access to care for uninsured individuals compared with privately insured individuals. The vertical axis shows percentage of core measures that are better, the same, or worse for uninsured, relative to insured, individuals. The approximate percentage for each variable is as follows:

  • Quality (9 core measures): Worse—90% (8), Same—10% (1).
  • Access (6 core measures): Worse—100% (6).
