In this brief, we update our 2020 report on coverage and access inequities using 2013–2019 data from the American Community Survey Public Use Microdata Sample (ACS PUMS) and the Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (BRFSS). We examine trends in Black and Latinx/Hispanic disparities across the following measures, with a particular focus on the effects of Medicaid expansion on equity at the state level:
- adults ages 19 to 64 who are uninsured
- adults ages 18 to 64 who went without care in the past 12 months because of cost
- adults ages 18 to 64 who report having a usual health care provider.
