Insurance, Access, and Quality of Care Among Hispanic Populations: 2003 Chartpack

×

This Chartpack is intended to serve as a quick reference and overview of insurance, access, and quality of care experiences among Hispanic populations in the United States. The charts draw from recent reports published by The Commonwealth Fund, as well as new analyses of Current Population Surveys, the 2000 Medical Expenditure Panel Survey, the 1996 Panel of the Survey of Income and Program Participation, the 2001 Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System Survey, and The Commonwealth Fund 2001 Health Care Quality Survey.

The charts profile uninsured rates and insurance instability over time among Hispanic populations; examine the link between lack of insurance, access to health care, and the receipt of preventive health services; and document the extent to which limited English language proficiency undermines patient-provider communication and overall quality of care for Hispanic populations.
