Supplementary notes

* For this question, the respondent was asked if they have one or more places to go when they are sick or need advice about their health. The response options were: yes; there is no place; and there is more than one place. Respondents who stated that their usual place to go for medical care was a hospital emergency room were categorized as not having a usual place to go for medical care.

** A respondent was coded as uninsured if he or she did not have any private health insurance, Medicare, Medicaid, Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP), state-sponsored or other government-sponsored health plan, or military plan at the time of interview. A respondent was also defined as uninsured if he or she only had Indian Health Service coverage, or had only a private plan that paid for one type of service, such as accidents or dental care.

*** A respondent was coded as currently with a public health plan if he or she had Medicare, Medicaid, Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP), state-sponsored or other government-sponsored health plan, or a military plan.

**** A respondent was coded as currently having private health insurance coverage if he or she had any comprehensive private insurance plan, including health maintenance and preferred provider organizations. These plans include those obtained through an employer, purchased directly, purchased through local community programs, or purchased through the Health Insurance Marketplace or a state-based exchange, but excludes those plans that pay for only one type of service such as accidents or dental care.
