A new report prepared by the Urban Institute for the Blue Cross Blue Shield Foundation of Massachusetts has found that Massachusetts remains the state with the lowest rate of uninsured adults between 18 and 64 in the country.

Based on a survey conducted last fall, 95.2 percent of those between 18 and 64 were insured, a figure virtually unchanged from the previous year and up from the 87.5 percent insured in 2006, the year the state's health insurance mandate was signed into law but before its implementation began.

The report notes that "the higher level of insurance coverage in the state has been associated with improvements in access to and use of care, quality of care, and the affordability of care. These important achievements provide evidence that Massachusetts residents are obtaining meaningful, comprehensive coverage."

The study was based on a randon telephone survey of 3,165 adults in October and November of 2009.

DOR will issue its annual report on compliance with the law later this year. For the most recent DOR report click here.
