Uninsured and Low-Income

HSC research focuses on access to care for the uninsured and those with low incomes. Combining HSC's household and physician surveys provides a rich picture of how access is changing in an era of increasingly competitive markets. Analyses document how pressures on the health care safety net affect access to care for those who are uninsured and/or have low incomes.
