Health Insurance Coverage of Individuals Ages 55-64, 1994-2002
Employee Benefit Research Institute (EBRI)
EBRI Notes, Vol. 25, No. 3, March 2004
Employee Benefit Research Institute estimates from the March 2003 Current Population Survey reveal that children and adults ages 55-64 were the most likely age groups to have health insurance coverage in 2002. The likelihood of individuals ages 55-64 being uninsured (12.9 percent) in that year was no greater than it was in 1994. However, future retired adults in this age group may be more likely to be uninsured if employer cutbacks to retiree health benefits affect them and they have no other means of obtaining health insurance.
