Health improves for previously uninsured adults after receiving Medicare coverage
Date:12/25/2007

s after age 65 years for the summary measure and several component measures. Relative to previously insured adults with cardiovascular disease or diabetes, previously uninsured adults with these conditions reported significantly improved trends in summary health, change in general health, mobility, agility, and adverse cardiovascular outcomes but not in depressive symptoms. Previously uninsured adults without these conditions reported improvement in depressive symptoms but not in summary health or any other measure. By age 70 years, the expected difference in summary health between previously uninsured and insured adults with cardiovascular disease or diabetes was reduced by 50 percent.

Our findings have important policy implications. Proposals to extend insurance coverage to uninsured near-elderly adults have been introduced in the U.S. Congress and endorsed by the American College of Physicians. Providing earlier health insurance coverage for uninsured adults, particularly those with cardiovascular disease or diabetes, may have considerable social and economic value for the United States by improving health outcomes, the authors conclude.
